2017 A Great Year for the Murray Hill Malls on Park Avenue!

In 2017, we experimented with new plantings and are ready to go into 2018 with a more sustainable landscape plan. On the perimeter of each bed, new decorative grasses have been planted that will hold water so that less watering will be necessary. These grasses are perennial and will return each year. At the back of each of the beds, perennial Stella d’Oro and Stella Rubia Lilies have been planted. These lilies are bulbous and store water in their bulbs so that less water is needed to maintain them. In the center of each bed, our seasonal annuals - spring tulips, summer begonias and seasonal chrysanthemums - will be installed.

The generosity of all who supported us in 2017 is amazing and appreciated. Next year, we hope to have even more people and organizations participating with us.

The Patrons of Park Avenue and all of its activities are supported by the generosity of corporations, small businesses, and generous individuals. Each year, we ask that each of the buildings that line Park Avenue in Murray Hill contribute at least $2,500 towards the maintenance and plantings of our beloved malls. For less than $7 per day, these buildings can have their front gardens cleaned and planted, have their fences painted and mended and enjoy the beautiful blooming trees that we plant and take care of. This is quite a bargain!!
