Garden to honor Adrienne Shelly

Memorial to be unveiled Monday in Manhattan

A memorial garden honoring the late multihyphenate Adrienne Shelly will be unveiled Monday in Manhattan’s Abingdon Square Park.

Andy Ostroy, Shelly’s widower and executive director of the Adrienne Shelly Foundation — established to support women filmmakers — will lead the 10 a.m. ceremony, with family, friends, colleagues and local politicians scheduled to attend. Best known as writer/director/co-star of Fox Searchlight hit “Waitress,” Shelly was murdered in November 2006.

“This has been a long, but very satisfying journey to honor my late wife in the park she loved so much, across from the building in which she lived for many years, worked and died,” Ostroy said.

The Adrienne Shelly Garden, spearheaded by Ostroy, is located on the southeast side of Abingdon Square Park, directly facing the building where Shelly was killed. The garden will soon feature a memorial plaque in her honor. In addition, an annual contribution to the park will be made by Shelly’s family for maintenance.
