It was my pleasure to interview the mystery man who has been cleaning the weeds along the highway in Battery Park City. Tessa Huxley’s well-funded parks conservancy refuses to do this job. She has even stopped caring for the large planters by the West Thames dog run, all due to a political dispute with the HRPT.
Meanwhile, individuals who give a damn are doing the job that our government should be doing. BatteryPark.TV was tipped off that the weeds by the West Thames crossing were chopped down by a volunteer. We saw him today and did an impromptu interview.
The man’s name is Michael Carthins. He has made some mistakes in life and is now involved in the Ready Willing & Able group doing community service.
This type of community service is one function Friends of BPC will be helping with, as well. Email us to get involved.
