If you notice some extra greenery in the city, then you have Woolly Pocket to thank. This week they've been setting up surprise pop-up gardens all over the place. They'll keep planting all summer, but this week they've already hit up West Houston and 6th Street, Broadway and Prince, Bleecker and Jane, and 14th Street and 9th Avenue (the Bleecker garden is pictured in the first two shots above).

We're told: "the Pop-Ups are gifts to help beautify NYC this summer and encourage New Yorkers to sign up to help plant even more gardens. The goal is to get the city as green as possible over the next few months." We fully support that.
