We were happy to see that Orchard Alley is back open ...
The community garden on East Fourth Street between Avenue C and Avenue D closed in the middle of July due to a "severe mosquito hazard" from the stagnant construction site at 27 Avenue D.
And as you can see, the garden is still looking lively for the season...
(NY1 covered the story in July. You may watch their report here.)
And from the back of Orchard Alley, you can see what's left of the garden at 321 E. Third St., which was sold in June to the vague 321 E. Third Street Realty LLC. for development. Still nothing on file with the DOB for the address.
