Our neighborhood green spaces are in full color now, showcasing rich purples, pinks, white (like the beautiful oakleaf hydrangea pictured above), and a variety of vibrant greens. While we take pride in planting seasonal blooms and shrubs in our 10 Broadway Mall end beds, urns, 66 area planters, and two parks, we also take care to keep our Broadway Mall interiors healthy and lush, and without bare spots or dead plants. Recently, we reached out to the NYC Parks Department to help procure a replacement tree in the 61st - 62nd Street Broadway Mall on the 61st Street side. Working quickly, Parks planted a non-white, flowering multi-stem crab apple tree which looks terrific. We are grateful for the strong partnership we have with the NYC Parks Department and appreciate this quick action. We hope everyone enjoys our neighborhood gardens as you walk around or sit and smell the flowers. Head to 61st Street to check out the new tree!

Neighborhood Construction Update
The NYC Department of Transportation (DOT) will begin paving 62nd Street between Columbus Avenue and Amsterdam Avenue on Friday, June 15, weather depending. Summer construction plans also include restoring West 62nd Street between Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues to two-way flow as well as reversing West 60th Street from Columbus to West End Avenues to a westbound direction. The change at West 60th Street is aimed at eliminating the head-on condition at Columbus Avenue, increasing safety for pedestrians crossing this intersection. DOT expects  that both changes, with associated markings, signage, and signal modifications will be fully complete by the middle of July or early August.
