Morgan Powell helped create the beautiful landscape of indigenous plants at Stuyvesant Cove Park, directly across the East River from the HarborLAB GreenLaunch and where we’ll support Baruch College access with our Folbot, the Jenni. He also championed the cause of recognizing African American history on our city’s waterways, especially along the Bronx River.
But beyond his considerable direct contributions, including free walking tours, he was simply a profoundly kind person to other green advocates. He was generous with his intellect, encouragement, and contacts. His advice was heartfelt and considered. He will be deeply missed.
