Block Party

As a New Yorker, one of my dreams was to organize a block party. In the summer of 2021, that dream came true. 

After a challenging year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and tragically losing a number of our beloved neighbors to the virus, my neighbors and I wanted to come together as a community and celebrate the spirit of our historic block in Queens, Pauline LeBlond Way.

From communicating with our local Community Board to holding planning meetings on the stoop, I loved organizing the event with my fellow neighbors. And as the resident artist, I was tapped to create the poster for the event! It was surreal and so moving to see my artwork posted all over the block and shared throughout the neighbourhood I love.

And one of the cool things that happened? Our local paper, The Ridgewood Times, covered the event!
