Guide to the Mendez Mural Community Garden Archive
||Mendez Mural Community Garden Archive
||The East Village's Mendez Mural Community Garden grew outside of city support but
became a fixture in the community and was widely utilized. In 1997, the city decided
to sell the land to real-estate developers creating a community uproar and protest.
On New Years Eve, 1997 the land was bulldozed for condominiums. The collection documents
the struggle to save the garden.
