Candlelight Remembrance for Jeff Axelrod Tonight

August 23, 2011

From the Carrol Gardens Patch:

Neighbors and friends of Jeff Axelrod, who died tragically last week while riding his bicycle on the Lower East Side, are holding a candlelight memorial service Tuesday night at Cobble Hill Towers.

Those who knew him are invited to come to the large courtyard, at Baltic and Hicks streets, at 8 p.m. Please bring a candle.

Axelrod was a resident of the Towers and the founder of the Cobble Hill CSA.

I didn’t know Jeff at all, but from what I’ve read about him and his volunteer work his death is a true loss to the community.  Please stop by if you can.

    Wish I was able to get back to the neighborhood tonight. I didn’t know Jeff either, and am sad to know we won”t cross paths either by bike or in the neighborhood.

    Jeff was my next door neighbor when we were very young & our families were super close. This is beyond devestating. He was always a wonderful guy. RIP Jeff, I love you.
