Descriptive Summary

 
Title: Mendez Mural Community Garden Archive
Dates [inclusive]: 1996-2000
Abstract: 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.
