Liz Christy Garden on East Houston Threatened

Another disturbing tale from the old Bowery. The Liz Christy Garden, at the northeast corner of Houston and the Big B, is NYC's oldest community garden. But, a volunteer writes in the Voice, the garden is threatened by further expansion by new apartment megastructure Avalon-Chrystie Place?which is, at this writing, across the street. Is Avalon hopping Houston? More clues, including word of a "heretofore obscure cul de sac called Extra Place," in an old Villager article. Avalon Chrystie Place: the place just gets weirder.
