Old Garden

Dear Mr. Coney Island...
When I was a student in NYC in 2007, I spent a lot of my time photographing a wonderful group of people who tended to a garden  and I forget where that garden used to stand. It was off of Mermaid Ave. and I wanna say 21st St. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hello Jason,
The garden was on West 20th Street on Mermaid. Unfortunately, the garden and building in the photo have been demolished and are being replaced with a high rise residential building. Here’s the site during construction. So many of the wonderful community gardens in Coney Island have been destroyed by development.
