I spoke to Alfredo and the got the heads up the Children’s Magical Garden on the Lower East Side is closing.
It has become a real problem including a rat problem that got out of control making it no longer a safe place.
The garden is to finally close after 29 years. Alfredo started with the garden with his deceased wife Carmen Rubio to provide a safe for children of the Lower East Side.
Alfredo has spoken with developer Surge Hoyda who promises to provide a space for a computer library in his building but he promises to provide a space for the children.
Alfredo is going to present this to the community board.
Alfredo is sorry to see the magical children’s garden come to an end.
