The Doe Fund's Ready, Willing, and Able street cleaning crew, who have worked in the Gramercy Park area since 2011, have made a huge difference in the cleanliness and quality of life here.


Their Director of Community Improvement Project Raymond Damm informed us they are leaving tomorrow for another location "temporarily."


If you'd like them to return, please take a minute to contact Raymond Damm (, 646-672-2982) to thank the crew's Supervisor Frederick Tolbert and his men for their excellent service, and to make a strong appeal for them to return to our area.  Please cc if you write an e-mail.
