Despite the rainy weather, the annual Downtown Alliance Adopt-A-Geranium day at Bowling Green Park proved to be a huge hit once again.

About 4,000 geraniums were dug up from Bowling Green Park and given away to new and returning customers. “I still have my mine from last year!” said one excited guest while picking out another geranium to add to her collection. The Alliance staff encouraged guests to take more than one geranium in return that they take good care of the plants, as they last year-round and bloom bright red flowers during the spring season.

On Saturday, October 20th, the Downtown Alliance will be hosting Fall Community Planting Day, where everyone is encouraged to come help make Lower Manhattan “green” by re-planting Bowling Green Park.
