LaGuardia Corner Gardens

See http://laguardiacornergardens.org/LaGuardia_Corner_Gardens/Welcome.html for more information about LaGuardia Corner Gardens. This amazing and wonderful garden is located at the corner of Bleecker Street and LaGuardia Place in lower Manhattan NYC. It is an oasis for local residents and visitors from all over the world. I am deeply indebted to the gardeners of the many small plots in this garden and hope this gallery will provide more insights into this marvelous community resource.

This garden, Bleecker & Mercer Street gardens, the community dog run along with the WSV Sasaki Garden in the block north of this garden are being threatened to be destroyed by a NYU2031 skyscraper building project.

On July 25, 2012 the New York City Council voted to support the NYU2031 expansion plan that will destroy this garden, the community's children's playgrounds, park strips, dog run and WSV Sasaki Garden to build a number of skyscrapers in the heart of historic Greenwich Village. Legal options are pending to restrain the NYC Government and NYU from proceeding with their plan.

This Fall 2013, a New York State Judge ruled that the Park Strips on LaGuardia Place & Mercer Street cannot be destroyed without New York State Parks approval. NYU appeals are pending. February 2014 - See The Villager report on some pending legal conditions at http://thevillager.com/2014/01/30/end-this-war-n-y-u-antis/ For February 17, 2014 NY Post report, see http://nypost.com/2014/02/16/de-blasios-nyu-appointments-may-influence-expansion-approval/
