BEAUTIFIES DOWNTOWN WITH FLOWER BASKETS
 

Glen Cove, NY – The Glen Cove Downtown Business Improvement District purchased 83 hanging flower baskets to grace the light poles of the downtown commercial district.

 

Brian Mercadante, a Downtown BID board member and Chairperson of its Capital Improvements Committee with Francine Koehler, BID Executive Director, in front of baskets on Glen Street.

Three extra-large baskets make a dramatic impact at the parking plaza in front of City Hall.

Working with the City’s Beautification Commission, the baskets are installed and maintained. This is the twelfth year that the Downtown BID has provided live plants for the downtown.   

 

The beautiful new baskets, supplied by F&M Farm of Melville, NY, contain a special variety of pink begonias, created to withstand hot dry conditions. Over the course of the summer, the baskets continue to fill out. While the Beautification Commission water truck comes around twice a week to water them, hanging baskets are notorious for quickly drying out.

“It would help us and the City tremendously if businesses would assist with the watering of the baskets that are in front of their establishments,” said Downtown BID Executive Director Francine Koehler. “We are hoping our downtown business owners will ‘adopt’ their baskets by providing a drink now and then during the heat of the summer.”

New art in Downtown

The Glen Cove Downtown BID is super excited about the art that is falling in Glen Cove from the skies. It is said that an anonymous donor has donated these wonderful pieces of art. We first noticed them in front of the library, and then in a walkway, but they are said to be all over Glen Cove now. Can you find them all?
