Apparently more gardens will disappear from our area. We have a few here in JC and from what I can tell, they will be around for a while. The neighborhood is still a bit too crappy at the moment for Condo Cancer to take over. I remember back in the 80’s there was this guy  Adam Purple. A true pioneer:

I remember he had some kind of machine that would paint purple foot prints around the East Village. If you followed them they would lead you to his Garden Of Eden.

Lots more to talk about since I’ve been home, which is a very short period of time. There is a whole accreditation thing that is happening at school which may determine the quality of students at Pratt. More on that later. Right now we are still up in the air as to how things will transpire.

Also more on Zebra…..
