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.
