Brooklyn -- Urban Oasis in Vinegar Hill

Collection Creator:

Archival materials
Place:
Urban Oasis in Vinegar Hill (Brooklyn, New York)
United States of America -- New York -- Kings -- Brooklyn
Scope and Contents:
Urban Oasis in Vinegar Hill holdings consist of 1 folder (31 transparencies)
General:
In 1979 this 25- by 60-foot urban garden was a dump filled with rubbish and rubble located behind a nearly derelict formerly commercial brick building. The invasive eight-foot tall Japanese knotweed that grew here was hacked down and hauled away along with 20 cubic yards of trash; a venerable privet was maintained. The owner dug down 18 inches, brought in 40 cubic yards of topsoil and five yards of manure and started a vegetable garden. Some of the bricks and rocks he had excavated were used to build a rock garden, waterfall and pool at the shady rear of the yard. Its higher elevation allowed water to run off into irrigation channels for the vegetables. Paving stones found on the property were laid creating five tiers connected by brick or plank steps. The first garden was finished by 1982 but had to be redesigned and rebuilt in 1988. New construction next door had shaded out this garden, and a lawn, except for a small patch of grass in the sunniest spot, was not feasible. Starting behind the house there is a private outdoor shower, ascending to a garden room for dining and entertaining with a brick built-in barbeque, table and chairs. At the next level the former vegetable garden was turned into a more formal ornamental garden with L-shaped beds planted with perennials anchored by a dwarf Japanese maple in the central bed. The irrigation pool was converted to a fish pond and small water garden that drains into an artificial rock-lined creek from which the water recirculates.
Since the site receives very little direct sun and is subject to urban air pollution the owner has found that woodland plants are the most successful. Ground covers have reduced the need for weeding and if it rains once a week the garden does not have to be watered. Ephemeral bulbs start the blooming season in March and the garden remains in bloom for eight or nine months of the year. Flowering ground covers including partridgeberry, wintergreen, bunchberry and myrtle form a tapestry in raised borders filled with topsoil enriched with manure. Wild flowers in the rock garden include trilliums, violets, bloodroot, and Solomon's seal. Shade-tolerant perennials and shrubs, notably hostas, ferns, yews and specimen hemlocks, other hardy perennials including purple coneflowers, bleeding hearts, daylilies, pinks, loosestrife, catmint and Russian sage, and self-sowing cleome and foxglove thrive in this Brooklyn garden.

Introduction:
The 1988 Festival celebrated the centennial of the American Folklore Society, founded one hundred years earlier because of the need to document and study cultures that were seen as disappearing. Much of the Society's attention today, however, is engaged in the documentation and interpretation of emerging traditions and cultural expressions. Folklorists work in inner cities, conduct research on occupational groups, analyze processes of traditionalization and cooperate with other professionals in devising natural conservation and historical preservation strategies, which also promote cultural continuity, equity and integrity. Visitors to the 1988 Festival could learn about what it is that folklorists do and what impacts they have on the communities with which they work.

The other living exhibitions that made up this year's Festival also provided ample illustrations of this same view of the traditional. The Massachusetts program told a paradigmatic American story. Gay Head Wampanoag, Yankee settlers, Afro American migrants, and immigrants from Italy, Greece, Poland, the Cape Verde Islands, Puerto Rico, and Southeast Asia have not only preserved their traditions; through ingenious acts of individual and community creativity they have adapted them and endowed them with new meanings, as circumstances have changed. The Metropolitan Washington program pointed to the heightened consciousness of cultural issues associated with the migration experience. The program asked how immigrants from El Salvador, Ethiopia, China, Trinidad and Tobago, as well as domestic Anglo and Afro American groups historically migrating from nearby states, discard, reinvent, and reconstitute their traditions as they actively make a new place home. A varied contingent of musicians and performers from several republics of the Soviet Union demonstrated how truly ancient traditions nurtured in various pastoral, tribal, and religious environments have not merely survived but actually flourished in contemporary Soviet life. Also at the Festival were American musicians who, as part of a groundbreaking cultural exchange with the Soviet Union, would later travel to Moscow to participate in the International Folklore Festival in August 1988 and be reunited with the Soviet musicians participating in the Smithsonian's Festival.

The 1988 Festival took place for two five-day weeks (June 23-27 and June 30-July 4) between Madison Drive and Jefferson Drive and between 10th Street and 14th Street, south of the National Museum of American History and the National Museum of Natural History (see site plan).

The 1988 Program Book included schedules and participant lists for each program; the Program Book essays provided a larger context for the Festival presentations, extending beyond the traditions actually presented at the 1988 Festival.

The Festival was co-presented by the Smithsonian Institution and National Park Service and organized by the Office of Folklife Programs.
