I fought to protect the willows in La Plaza at 9th Street and Avenue C from 1987 until the park was declared part of the NY City Parks Department a few years ago. All things must pass, I know, but the knowledge doesn’t make the passing any easier. I have loved people, animals and trees in my life, and the tree that lived across from me I loved dearly. It was my view, my good morning, and my hello. RIP my dear friend. You will be missed by many. 1977 - 2011.
