Shes at it again: Bette Midler is adding to her good works in the city, which already include this Robert A.M. Stern boathouse on the Bronx River.

She's at it again: Bette Midler is adding to her good works in the city, which already include this Robert A.M. Stern boathouse on the Harlem River.

Bloomberg Networks’ architectural critic James Russell writes today about Bette Midler’s continuing commitment to beautifying some of New York’s derelict open spaces (with the unintentional side effect of reducing the number of “Law & Order” crime-scene sites). The Divine Miss M is in New York “to open a community garden next to an abandoned tenement, the 33rd oasis her New York Restoration Project has transformed from garbage-strewn wasteland.” You remember the Peter Jay Sharp Boathouse by Robert A. M. Stern with Armand LeGardeur on the Harlem River in Swindler Cove Park, one of the Restoration Project’s most lauded transformations.
