Snow Day in Crotona Park

I  can’t explain the joy I felt Friday morning when I didn’t have to go to work because of the blizzard. Nothing more perfect than a snow day on a Friday! To celebrate, I went to Crotona Park’s free Snow Day on Saturday. After any sizable snow storm in NYC, the Parks Department hosts free sledding events in all five boroughs. I used to own a sled when I was a kid and would slide down the stairs in the backyard and I hadn’t done any sledding since. So, 15 years later, I had a chance to take part in one of my favorite childhood pastimes and sled with reckless abandon, forgetting about all adult b.s. for just a few  minutes. Plus, if you check out the video, you’ll see I made a friend on my adventures (He wipes out almost half way down lol).

    Good Morning, my name is Michelle. I am from the National Action Network Bronx Chapter located at 812 Faile Street Bx, NY 10474 347 951-9626. Over the past several months we have been gathering petitions to stop the destruction of this historic theatre, the last remaining theatre in the community and surrounding area. We have created a online petition as well http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/save-parkchester-american ….please forward to all who are concerned. They want to turn it into a TJ Max when a outlet is being designed to take over the Whitestone theatre. Please contact me to verify if you were able to submit an application. Thank you and Happy New Year…..
