Think of Dumped Cars as Future Coral Reefs

There’s an excellent piece in the Times today about plots of land purchased by the city over the years, supposedly to be turned into parks: “But in scores of cases, nothing happens. Many of the undeveloped plots, which are often in densely populated, poor communities with limited green spaces, exist as de facto garbage dumps and occasional crime scenes.” The above photo was taken by Angel Franco for the Times at Pugsley Creek Park in the Bronx. When global warming puts New York under water, this should be a great fishing spot.
