The major upheaval around the Promenade and Pierrepont Playground are clearly Parks Department; most other street incursions are Sanitation fodder. “This is a mulch-lover’s boon,” said one passerby, awestruck by the crushed wall along a Grace Court garden, bordering Hicks Street, and the debris of a tree probably half a century old.
