Neighborhood Watch cleaning up 'Burgh boulevards

The North Lansingburgh Neighborhood Watch is soliciting suggestions for historic boulevards that are in need of a little TLC. The group will be out trimming trees and bushes over several evenings in the coming weeks.

"The boulevards are a unique aspect to the Lansingburgh community," said group leader Jim Gordon in a press release sent out today. "Keeping up their appearance will add to the appeal of our neighborhoods as well as increasing safety on the streets." He specifically addressed areas where overgrown bushes and trees can block sight lines at street corners for drivers and pedestrians.

"This is a great way for our group to lend a helping hand to the city's workforce and to also get out into the community and show that there are people who care," said Gordon.

The group is looking for suggestions for which boulevards should be considered. Residents are encouraged to e-mail Gordon at

For more information, contact Gordon at 365-2270.
