Meet Crystal, Felix and Victor of 370 East 153rd Street, a NYCHA building in Melrose. These family members have been tired of looking at the poor condition of the landscaping around their building and have decided to take matters into their own hands.
They have begun creating beds in one of the barren sections of the building and hope to be receiving mulch and dirt from mulch from the city as well as seeds to start growing their flowers. Crystal, Felix, and Victor are thinking of naming the garden Mrs Doris’ Garden, after a late resident of the building who recently passed away and was very involved in making sure the place was kept in order.
Here’s to community residents in action and taking care of their blocks! If we all took care of our own blocks we can truly make the Bronx even more beautiful than it already is.
