A tribute to our neighbor Lys McLaughlin Pike

Marian Heiskell, GrowNYC's founder, left, and Lys, right, in 1986 at Brooklyn's first Lots-for-Tots park/playground.


For 28 years, Lys McLaughlin Pike was Executive Director of GrowNYC, where she established the Greenmarket, created gardens out of empty lots, and provided environmental education in public schools.

Thank you dear Lys for your extraordinary contributions to our city!
