Community Greens

People of all colors discussing evergreen ideas.

About Community Green

Villages may raise children but communities raise cities. And cities are filled with communities of all colors and people with all sorts of ideas. They all meet on the Community Green. This adventure was started by several of us community folk to crosstalk and connect the dots. The lines of communication between the dots are silk and the dots are magic oasis. We hope to capture some nuggets of community activity and we encourage you to take part in this wonderful enterprise. We hope you paddle down the Bronx River, start a Butterfly Garden, march in the Fish Parade, Run in the Hunts Point Hustle or just be B.A.A.D. Send your events and comments to Community Green. We look forward to hearing from you, but more importantly, we look forward to meeting you!

You may have noticed we are a little Bronxcentric. That’s not a bad thing. Who else can boast about the Yankees, the South Bronx, Salsa and elevate Graffiti to a world class art form. We look forward to meeting, greeting and working with you islanders in our village.

    I don’t think Graffiti is anything to boast about. The only Graffiti I see in The Bronx these days is tagging. It reminds me of Facebook without the couth.

      Check out the Tats Cru site. It certainly isn’t “graffiti”. It’s commissioned work with a unique style that may have originated with graffiti but it has certainly become a recognized art form. The murals they create aren’t always on the path most traveled but they are worth a look. Tagging is defacing others work and property.
