From The New York Shitty Inbox: The Discovery Garden

This item comes from a gentleman named Thomas. He writes:

Dearest Miss Heather,

If you have been to McGolrick Park in the last few months, I’m sure you have noticed the Discovery Garden that our enterprising local gardener, David, has painstakingly created. It is goddamn beautiful. Unfortunately, over the next few days, he is being forced to disassemble the wooden fence, dig up the plants, and turn it back into grass.Some people at the Parks Dept. just don’t get it. This is the greatest Greenpoint tragedy since Bee’s was DOH’ed.

The person we need to get though to is:

Julius Spiegel
Brooklyn Borough Commissioner
New York City Dept. of Parks and recreation
(718) 965-8920

I would ask anyone who has appreciated this garden or has enjoyed the McGolrick dog run (David has been a true friend to the dog run) to make a quick call.

Thank you.



I have no idea what this is about— but I have every intention of finding out! In the meantime if anyone out there is “in the know” by all means share your intelligence with the rest of us in the comments!

Miss Heather
