Just spoke to Derek. He's gathering neighbors who want to transform this lot into a community growing space. He has a sketch already. Onwards!

A neighbor brought this lot to our attention (it wasn't in the City database!). Here is what we told them:

Wow - nice find! This lot belongs to the City of New York. We just added it to our website here: https://livinglotsnyc.org/lot/59305/
You can organize to have it transferred to the NYC Parks Department
Start by clicking ORGANIZE on the page.
Here is a sketch of what a campaign for transfer will looks like: https://livinglotsnyc.org/pathways/access-nyc-hpd-land/
The things you will definitely need are:

 

    • List of community members interested in the project (at least 10 names, addresses, phone numbers, emails)

 

    • Sketch or rendering of how you want to use the lot

 

    • A mission or vision statement that lists benefits to the community;

 

    • A letter of support from community board 16

 

    • A name for the proposed garden/group being formed to look after the garden;

 

    • List of partners/sponsors/endorsers (including churches, school, local business, city agencies, etc.)

 

    • OPTIONAL but very nice: a letter of support from Council Member Mealy; once you have a group together and a short written proposal, we can introduce you to her staff

 

    • OPTIONAL but very nice: Letters of support from other local organizations
