4-21-12 New York Cares Day

Today was the annual spring New York Cares Day. I was assigned to shoot at Marcus Garvey Park.  This is a park in the heart of Harlem. 10 years ago it was not a place where falling asleep on a park bench was advised.  Since then the community rallied around it and it is now one of the nicest “small” parks in Manhattan.  That doesn’t mean it doesn’t need love and some extra help. Lots of volunteers from lots of different organizations came out to paint, weed, collect trash, and in general spruce up.
