Dear Wellington,

 

On August 17th, Chinatown launched a stewardship campaign to protect and nurture the beautiful new cherry and London plane trees that were planted on the Bowery in November 2010. Chinatown "won" 35 new trees along the Bowery last year, and now it's up to Chinatown to keep these beautiful new trees that we gained alive and beautiful!  (In addition to the 12 trees in front of St. James Place).


Street trees often have a pretty tough time in the midst of traffic, hot pavement, and harsh condition.  Especially in their younger years, they need our help to keep going. And our help really can make a big difference - the difference between cooling shade and refreshing greenery during the hot summer, or more of the same cement, stone and blacktop that we see so much of. To paraphrase a common saying, it takes a (China) town to grow a tree, and you can become the neighbor who does it.

 

What's involved? A little time, a little toughness and a little caring!

  • A couple of hours a week to water the trees during the growing season.
  • An occasional "walk-around" throughout the year to make sure all is well and remove a bit of litter and to pull up a weed or two.
  • If you'd like, the chance to plant and tend to some flowers around the tree(s) if you're someone who enjoys doing so.
  • The desire to see an urban "forest" grow year by year, and to have the pride of knowing that you helped make this happen.

Chinatown Beautification Day

Chinatown Beautification Day began as a project created by CYI's 2003 Summer Leadership Institute. The main motivation was to address concerns that Manhattan's Lower East Side had become neglected in the aftermath of 9/11. Since 2003, CYI has held CBD annually, consistently gathering between 150 and 350 high school youth to clean the streets of Chinatown. In 2009, CBD was expanded to include the Citywide Youth Conference, which preceded CBD in the same weekend. At the conference, youth attended workshops on a variety of issues, including mental health, women's empowerment, hip hop as a tool for social justice, and cultural identity.  More Info
