Back to the Garden

Work at the SE corner of Fourth and 12th is still stalled, with all permits for construction long expired.  What has happened to the promise of sheltered housing for young adults?  It really was good news.

The site is steadily becoming more derelict.  The sagging fences are covered in graffiti, with the corner reserved for a slew of anti-Citi Bike/Lander invective.  Inside the lot, garbage accumulates, and (at least more creative) graffiti creeps in. The sweet community garden signs are still visible, but there's not much tender loving care here.  Looking back, the trees and the thick summer crop of flowering weeds in earlier years seem almost Edenic.
