Fordham Tower / New York Botanical Garden

  • Subject: [cg] Fordham Tower / New York Botanical Garden

Here's the skinny. The New York Botanical Garden (in the Bronx)  is one of
the premiere Botanical gardens in the world ( also world class is the
Brooklyn Botanic Garden where ACGA President Ellen Kirby  works)and has a
fairly powerful neighbor, Fordham University.

Fordham University has an FM radio station and wants to build a large radio
transmitter tower on its property adjacent to the New York Botanical Garden
in the Bronx. This transmitter will ruin several of the vistas in the
Botanic garden including the last few acres of virgin forest that New York
City possesses. Along with the New York Yankees, both the New York Botanical
Garden and Fordham University are Bronx heavyweights. I like Fordham, its
resident Cardinal ( Cardinal Avery Dulles, one of nature's noblemen) and my
wife who is currently attending Fordham's Lincoln Center campus.

Here's the NY Botanical  Garden website: http://www.nybg.org/ 

However, the radio tower should be placed somewhere else. If you ACGA folks
thing the same way, please sign the on-line petition and send some cards and
letters, etc.

Best wishes,
Adam Honigman
