An open lot on the corner of Pacific Street and Boerum Place survives while new, huge buildings go up ahead, behind and across the way. Two years ago peppers and tomatoes and summer savoury were planted along its rusted chainlink fence. Then it lay fallow, occupied only by the wounded cars that rested in its confines. This year, the gardener made a decision. Garden or bust. I hope I meet him or her.
