Follow-up Friday: Rats, community garden

Monica Makes It Happen

Monica Morales is making it happen. This week, she turned an eye back to some past stories with her Follow-up Friday.

She visited the Stuyvesant Gardens, where tenants say rats have overtaken the development — and playground.

A community garden — not just built for community members, but by community members, too — held an event about six months after opening in the fall. Students from P.S. 111 planted in honor of Malcolm X’s birthday, and Councilmember Jimmy Van Bramer recognized the activists.

And in East Harlem, crews got to work on a leak that’d been dripping for over a year.
