Follow-up Friday: Activists dream of community garden achieved, named in her memory

Monica Makes It Happen

Roxy Reid — a beloved Bronx housing advocate for other three decades at the Castle Hill Houses — lost her battle to COVID-19 earlier this year.

Her son said it’s emotional to see his mother’s dream come true — not just the garden, but to see the community work together in the space.
