BBB Volunteer Day

Giving Back at Harlem River Park
October 16, 2019

BBB’s New York office pitched in to help rejuvenate Harlem River Park.

On September 20, BBB NYC staff gathered at Harlem River Park for our annual BBB Volunteer Day and assisted the City Parks Foundation in their efforts to brighten up the waterfront park. BBB volunteers painted benches, pipe-rail fencing and other items along the water, and celebrated a job well done with a picnic. Harlem River Park lies adjacent to the East River, with baseball fields, basketball courts, and playgrounds. In 2015, the park was supported by the Partnerships for Parks Catalyst Program, a community development program that builds park communities and connects people to NYC green spaces and waterfronts.
