Flowerbox Award: 60 St. Mark's Place

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.
