QNS originally profiled Negoescu in November 2015, highlighting the incredible work he had done transforming an old dumping ground on the Ridgewood/Glendale border into a beautiful community garden.
People saw the story and commented on it, sending their thanks to Negoescu for beautifying the area, saying how much they love the garden and that they frequently visit the area while walking around town.
Since the first story was published, Negoescu has continued working on the garden, adding in more paved bricks, four benches to allow passersby to sit and relax for a minute as they travel through Ridgewood and Glendale, more flowers and potted plants and even garden sculptures.
Negoescu can still be seen from time to time on the corner working on his garden.
