Greenpoint residents and local pols are eyeing the empty lot at 61 Franklin Street to transform it into a community garden. This Saturday, Council Member Steve Levin will host a planning meeting to discuss the organization, rules, responsibilities and membership of this space. The meeting will be held at 2 pm at GoodYoga on Calyer Street. This particular lot, owned by the HPD, has been empty for decades. The momentum to open it up for public use picked up this winter. The organizers are expecting a very good turnout for this weekend’s meeting. You can also track the progress of the garden at the 61 Franklin Street Facebook page.
