Hi Perry! It seems the lot is still vacant, but you can get together with your neighbors and organize to transform it into a community garden. To do this, you will need to create a campaign to have this public lot transferred from the Department of Citywide Administrative Services to NYC Parks, where you can steward it via GreenThumb. Here are some things you might consider gathering as you organize your neighbors, which will help you build a successful campaign:

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

  • A letter from the local Community Board in support of the project and group (this information is found in the "Political Boundaries" section of the lot's page);

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

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

  • Sketch or rendering of project

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

Some letters of support from elected officials are also helpful. You can use the "Political Boundaries" section on the lot's page to see the elected officials and community board for the lot. You might also be able to get a letter of support from GreenThumb.

Are there any updates for this site? I'm a local and could lend a hand to get a community garden (and composting) started.

From Katie:

"Kyle called and left me a message with the name of a contact person at Parks. His message made it sound so simple. I believe from his message that this property is available. My personal life has been unbelievably hectic over the past month. Now that things appear to be calmed down, working on the school garden is on my list of top priorities. I appreciate all of your help and support."

Katia says, "This lot is adjacent to a school where I work. We would like to build a school/community garden." I spoke with her today and gave her directions for calling Mr. Daniels at DCAS to verify that there are no agency plans for this piece of public land. Katia told me that cars park here sometimes and there is a container on the lot but she is not sure who it belongs to.
