During the hottest week of the year so far, the children of one Bronx NYCHA community made sure their voices were heard. They helped renovate and design a new water park in their neighborhood.
At a time when parks in NYCHA are so critical, it was a big victory for families at the Patterson Houses. The project was completed following seven weeks of brainstorming; children as young as five contributed and on Friday, it was time to test the waters.
