Jen-Jen

 

I didn’t even notice that Jen-Jen had trash in her hands until I looked at this photo. Her and her¬†siblings¬†were picking up rocks to trow into the water.

Barretto park was not that dirty but it was dirty enough. I saw a few diapers on the ground and that was it.

Jen-Jen is standing in Barretto Park. This part of the Bronx is not that popular and not many people visit because of it’s surroundings. It’s known as a waste land. There are many factories in the area, however; recently New York City Parks along with other organizations such as Rock-the-Boat has been cleaning up the area . Planting grass around the water and making it more suitable for residents.

Check out this New York Times article which speaks a little bit about it:
