A Sunnyside good neighbor

Sunnyside resident and SNA member Eileen Shields has been quietly tending a portion of the Circular Ave Ribbon Garden for years — picking up litter and clipping back bushes. A passerby talked to her today as she worked on the long narrow strip of greenery next to fast-moving traffic.

Here is a photo from the opening ceremony for the Ribbon Garden in 2011.
