The Oval Lawn - Let's Try Again!

Tishman Speyer's stewardship of the Oval Lawn has been abysmal. The lawn has never looked this dismal, with many swampy areas, an ugly central mound that can almost grow no grass (the mound was added last year), and numerous people-made paths crisscrossing what once was a pristine green turf. Well, it's that time of the year again when Tishman Speyer attempts to, once again, do the Oval Lawn right. Will they succeed? By the summer, no way.

When the lawn was first opened I wrote Stuy Town management that when baby carriages and shopping carts were dragged over a fragile piece of urban turf it would turn into a sea of mud. They responded that people liked sunbathing. But in fact it's become a sea of mud- as predicted. Another brilliant decision by management.

I grew up in Stuy Town during the 70's and 80's. My father's parents were some of the original tenants at 523 E. 14th St.. It is so sad to see what has become of what was once an amazing place to grow up in NYC.
