A reader asked this question after taking a cab ride across Houston to the FDR the other day... the reader asked, "Is this what the city means by green streets?" The reader also thinks the weeds will be taller that the Hamilton Fish Park Library across the way.
Hmm... here's looking west from Avenue D toward the construction zone...
The $60 million Houston Street Corridor Reconstruction is expected to end in the summer of 2014. The plan calls for the widening of sidewalks, enlarging of medians, installating new pavement markings and bicycle lanes from Second Avenue to FDR Drive and creating two new plaza areas.
Anyway, we kind of like weeds.
