Photo by Gerry PaddenBroken Window had its second clean-up this past Saturday and a reporter from The Brooklyn Paper was there to ask us questions. Will post a link to the article as soon as it becomes available. We'll be having two more clean-ups on the 18th and 25th. We hope some of you can make it out one of those days. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to volunteer or just meet us on any of the days listed above at one o'clock at the Prison Ship Martyrs Monument at the top of Fort Greene Park.
In the meantime, head over to The Wall Street Journal to read How to Build a Greener City. The New York Times has a great article about food trucks targeting kids in San Francisco, read it here. Slate also has an article on strange animal smuggling stories, Psst...Know Where I Can Get Some Parrot Eggs? And on The Brian Lehrer Show, Murray Weiss of DNAinfo was interviewed about crime statistics in the New York City area. How does your neighborhood rate? You might be surprised.
