Overview

No votes yet

De Colores Community Yard and Cultural Garden is a lovingly planted cool oasis, it has hand made mosaic tiles to create pathways, vegetables, flowers, trees, and places to rest or barbecue, or to just hang out. It came into existence after the larger ABC Garden across the street was bulldozed to build senior housing; at that point much of the block had burned down and taking over a smaller empty lot made sense. It is very much a neighborhood resident’s garden. Two doors down from there, is a small former synagogue building that was known as the Eighth Street Shul, or more formally by its reference to the two towns in Poland for which it was named . After a decade of legal contests concerning its sale at the point that the block was still somewhat dangerous, it is now a renovated multi-million dollar private residence.
