Columbus Gardens

I have some fuzzy recollection that this third ward Housing Authority project was supposed to have a dog run and a BBQ pit installed.

Is there growing tension between the “yuppies” and the “projects” in that area? In just a few years what was once just the Projects and some warehouse buildings has turned into wall-to-wall “luxury” condos around the projects.

I seem to remember someone saying the HHA people didn’t want a dog park used by yuppies, even though it was supposed to be a dog park for them. That’s why it may have been removed. Same for the BBQ pit. Unlike the 4th ward projects which are a city unto themselves, the newcomers around the 9th street projects just look at the HHA as “part of the neighborhood” for their use.

An email sent to third ward Councilman Michael Russo asking what happened here has not yet been answered.

While it was under construction:
