Bleecker Street Series #56 Bleecker Street Tour begins here: http://www.fotolog.net/ronni/?photo_id=6907957 Bleecker Street Map is here: http://www.fotolog.net/ronni/?photo_id=7695350 Father Demo Square is named for a priest who worked at Our Lady of Pompeii Church [http://www.fotolog.net/ronni/?pid=7726708 ] in the early years of the 20th century. To orient yourself, take a look at the map [ http://www.fotolog.net/ronni/?photo_id=7695350 ]. The square is really a triangle in the lower right corner at Sixth Avenue and Bleecker, and this photo was taken from in front of the Avignone Pharmacy [ http://www.fotolog.net/ronni/?pid=7906564 ] across the street. They tell me the Square is going to be renovated and redesigned – and it surely does need it. I would like to see a great deal more bushes and flowers and winding walkways would be nice. To do that, it would probably need to be fenced at night, but we’ve become accustomed to that in New York. It’s too bad, but it’s what is. It will be nice if the renovation rumor is true. The city has done a good job on other parks they have redesigned in recent years. But don’t hold your breath. It can take a decade – even more - for the City to go from idea to realization.
