Today I rode my bike a nearly equivalent distance on the east side, to the City Greenhouse
in the ridiculously pretty Rockefeller Park. Neighborhood Connections
was having an event for all the grantees and anyone else who wanted to come. The weather was perfect, and most of the folks did some sort of presentation or show for their project. There were dancers, tumblers, violinists, some pantomime sorta stuff
from Morrison Dance
and pizza and ice cream. Jeff Schuler
was even there doing capoeira
with folks from the Passport Project. I managed to do some good networking and I hope I’ll be able to get the lady from the Tremont History Project to do monthly postings on historical items of interest on Tremonter.
I got a good workout, since I also helped tear down all the tables and then had to ride my bike back to Tremont. On my way back I saw, some dude who told me to “Get the fuck out of my neighborhood, nigger!” a woman in her 60s [or possibly older] wearing a belly shirt [I almost wiped out when I saw that] and heard this crazy noise coming from all the cars on the rumble strips of Dead Man’s Curve.
I’m friggin’ exhausted. All my pics are here.
