Good news! The Sobriety Garden has been saved!
Dr. Miescher got word this morning following a meeting between Bellevue and our local politicians that the hospital has agreed to not destroy the garden, and to find its parking spaces elsewhere. We are enormously grateful to everyone for getting involved and for getting results! We thank the persistent commitment by Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney; New York State Senators Liz Krueger and Tom Duane; City Council Member Daniel R. Garodnick; Borough President Scott Stringer, the members of Community Board Six, and the members of the Bellevue Community Advisory Board, especially Lyle Frank. Special appreciation goes to the staff members of these politicians who attended meetings, fielded petitions and phone calls, and whose own commitment to patient welfare and therapeutic gardening made this success a possibility.
Thank you to everyone on these lists who sent in letters and petitions and made those phone calls.
