THE NEW SUSTAINABLE MURRAY HILL MALLS ON PARK AVENUE

For the last three years, POPA has been working towards creating new, sustainable plantings on our malls that will not require as much water, annual plants and maintenance care. This year, that work has finally come into fruition. Our malls are the most beautiful that they have ever been. The Stella d’oro lilies and the Stella Rubia lilies will come back each year. The liriope planted in the front of the beds holds in water so that we do not have to water as frequently. Under the guidance of Irma Worrell Fisher, the Founding Chair of POPA, we have undertaken a vigorous planting program to reforest the ground cover on the malls which over the years has suffered the vicissitudes of freezing cold weather in the winter and broiling hot sun in the summer. We have also replaced the holly bushes that expired over the last few years as well as four cherry trees and four alder trees. Thank you to everyone who supported us with the pledges and gifts!

Each year, we ask that the buildings that line Park Avenue donate a minimum of $2500 per building. As this small amount comes to $50.00 per week, most of our buildings give gladly and generously. Last year, the following buildings generously gave POPA their fair share. If you do not see your building on this list or if your building has not participated at the full amount, please urge your Boards of Directors or your Building Owners to join us this year by contributing their fair share of $2500 or more. The Murray Hill Malls on Park Avenue are the largest jewel in the crown of lovely, old Murray Hill. Please help us keep them that way.
