There have been ripples on the Washington Market Park garden
The neighborhood total didn’t take a lot of successful from Hurricane Ida particularly in comparison with different elements of town — although I’m positive there are tales of swamped basements that I’ve not heard about but — however the Washington Market Park garden took a beating.
The drain there has lengthy been an issue on the park. About 4 years in the past, the Parks Division, with funds secured by the Mates of Washington Market Park via Margaret Chin’s workplace, put in a French drain and regraded the garden to enhance the puddle that at all times appeared on the garden after a giant rain, however these document rains clearly took issues to a brand new stage.
It might be time to snake the drains earlier than the subsequent whopper.
