Thanks to a Good Stuffed Animal Samaritan, there's now a Baby Kong in the Sixth Street and Avenue B Community Garden
Back in February we had the story about how Kong, the stuffed animal that longtime East Village resident Nefertiti Jones had as a child, ended up in the Community Garden. (Link to the story is below.)
Unfortunately, Kong went missing earlier this month. As Jones wrote in an Instagram post, "I am heartbroken my beloved Kong was stolen ... Kong who was loved by so many people and had become a permanent fixture on Avenue B was taken a few days ago. If you have seen him please bring him back."
The note reads in part: "I offer hope and health to all who care for me. Hopefully, mommy and daddy Kong come back to visit. If not, I am here to carry their legacy!"
