Information about this lot
Why is this lot here?
We think this lot is vacant because:
HPD is trying to offer Nelson Mandela Community Garden this lot "in exchange" for our space. We are not interested in usurping local organizers. Please contact me if you are working on this space. 917 275 6577. We need a statement that it is being organized locally. Thanks! René
"I'm a 10-year resident of the block, mother of two, and would love to make something beautiful out of this lot. I work part time and so I have time to commit to the project. I am taking this to our block association to see who else would like to be involved."
Andrea, that's something that can be fixed if you're interested in this space! GreenThumb offers clean fill: http://www.greenthumbnyc.org/resources.html
Did you ever call DCAS to see what the status of the lot is?
The biggest issue with this lot, is that it's not safe. There is a large drop (cliff) about 4 feet into the lot, so it will be hard to utilize it without some major equipment to fix the drop.
Any updates on opening up the bit of the commons on your block? Have you reached out to the City Agency that has jurisdiction over it?
