Black History in NYC Parks


I volunteered in the Crotona Park Garden when I was a kid. My mother, when she was 75 years old, mentioned how for years, my brother and I would bring home, “shopping bags full of vegetables from the garden”. She also added, “You boys didn’t realize how much of a help you were to me as a single mom during some difficult times. You stayed out of trouble and put food on the table. I just want you to know that”.

My mom passed away a few years ago at 95 but I will always remember she appreciated my brother and I participating in a NYC Parks Garden Program.
