A groundbreaking in the next couple of weeks will turn a swath of land along the Marigny–Bywater border on Press Street into the new Press Street Garden. After a year in the oh-so-fun process of obtaining permits, The Times-Pic reports that an arbor, a shipping container building donated from the Candies Shipyard in Houma, and (of course) a garden will take over the half-acre space between Dauphine and Burgundy Streets. The kids from the neighboring New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts will use the Press Street Garden as a part of their studies (their Boxcar food truck will park there for breakfast and lunch, p.s.) but the garden is indeed open to the public.
