It's My Park Day! Sunset Park

Just wanted to share some information. Back in 2009, a small group of residence came together to do something about the obscene amount of trash that accumulated in the park. They came out every weekend to pick up trash and soon earned notability in the area. Today, residence and community groups from Sunset Park still come together to help keep the park clean of trash.

Learn how to volunteer with some of these groups on It's my Park Day! May 19, 2012 in Sunset Park's park, Brooklyn.

So glad these days are behind us! Look at that mess. This image was shot after a busy day in July back in 2009.

Thanks to all who help keep the park clean and beautiful including:
The Sunset Park Garden Club
And of course the Sunset Park Park's department employees!

If we all do a little, we can help " improve the best view in Brooklyn."

-> When I went for a bike ride in the area, I noticed this station was being cleaned. This gentlemen was nice enough to share his progress. Just before shooting this, he was showing some before and after cleaning pictures on his phone. It is coming along nicely.
