The little triangle at the intersection of State, Green, and Columbia streets has a name: Rogers Park. It has a history that's more than a century long, as evident from the 19th-century iron fence that surrounds it. It also had some lovely old rose bushes, but now the only things planted there are campaign signs.
This morning, a reader alerted Gossips to the fact the the rose bushes were gone, and indeed they are.
When and why the rose bushes were removed is not known, but it's regrettable. They were the best thing about this poor, sad little triangle, which now is graced only by the rather graceless classical "temple" that houses Hudson's "Olympic torch."
Hudson needs a Parks Commission.
