Clinton Hill Day

the crowd On Saturday, I checked out Clinton Hill Day.  CHC invited me to hang with his family for some BBQ, dinner and dancing, and I was not disappointed.  The PS11 playground was full of people reminiscing, reuniting and celebrating.  A DJ spun crowd-pleasing jams and kids played in bouncy castles.  It was the kind of vibe that brought me to this neighborhood, and I wish I had experienced this kind of community gathering growing up.

Since I don't have any family in the city, it was awesome to be "adopted" for the day.  Next year, bring a grill and come on out.

Here's one explanation why block parties like this are so important in communities!
