Grow Light Special
. St. Mark's Place is not my favorite street in New York. We have enough tattoo parlors and head shops along Sixth Avenue over in our neck of the woods thank-you-very-much.
It's easy to forget that even New York's dingiest, ugliest, stinkiest streets have some beautiful things happening.
Streets are constantly changing.
And growing: this month, a windowsill and fire escape* gardener on St. Mark's is doing quite well transforming their windows onto St. Mark's into a green haven... and not without the help of grow lights, mind you. skgr
* For those of you who have expressed concern about some of our award winners blocking fire escapes with their plants, rest assured that t his winner has very carefully arranged their pots and boxes so that they do not block any egress from the building.
