Sure, it was cold last night, but bundled up in hats and gloves, with a cup of hot chocolate in their hands, a group of Carroll Gardeners attended the annual Christmas Tree lighting in the charming little Transit Garden at the corner of Second Place and Smith Street. Ornaments were hung, Christmas carols were sung and Season's Greetings were exchanged.
The event was hosted by the neighborhood group that took over the former Metropolitan Transit Authority parking lot, turned it into a garden and continues to lovingly plant and care for the little green oasis.
Thank you to the MTA representatives who stopped by. And thank you also to State Senator Daniel Squadron and fellow Carroll Gardener for joining the festivities.
