Today was the Mosholu Parkway Clean Up by Jerome Avenue which was sponsored by Assemblyman Mark Gjonaj, The Friends of Mosholu Parkway, The Jerome Gun Hill BID, Bedford Mosholu Community Organization, NYC Parks & Partnership for Parks, and 52nd Precinct Explorers.
Due to a death in his family Assemblyman Gjonaj was unable to attend, but members of his staff and some of his many friends were on hand to help the volunteers that showed up. The area to be cleaned up was the Circle of Friends Plaza located at Jerome Avenue and E. Mosholu Parkway North. As you will see in the photos below several activities went on including trash removal, planting of flowers, weeding, and more.
