A Sukkah Pops Up at 181 Stanton Street

181 Stanton Street.

At this time of year, sukkahs sprout throughout the Lower East Side.  Here’s one at 181 Stanton Street, a city-owned lot across from the Stanton Street Shul.   This past summer, community activists spruced up this neglected parcel, which the Department of Housing Preservation and Development is looking to sell to a private developer.  A week from tonight, a group interested in using the space on an interim basis will go before Community Board 3’s parks’ committee to detail their proposal. The Jewish holiday of Sukkot continues until this coming Sunday.

    CB3’s Park Committee voted unanimously for a Green Thumb community garden on these two HPD lots last night. Green Thumb’s representative spoke and said that Green Thumb recognized the existing garden and had spoken to HPD to confirm that no current development plans had been approved.
