New York - Mid Week

It’s the morning of Wednesday March 17, St. Patricks Day. However, that’s not what is important. The past couple of days we have been helping out at a Boy’s and Girl’s Club in Harlem. I was able to paint a couple of murals’ for them. I felt great about putting a new touch on their gym. After walking through or taking a bus through Harlem, we have gone to PS 50. It has been great to help with kids with their homework and playing with them. As well as doing work during the days, we have gotten to go out at night. Monday night we ventured to Midtown around Times Square to find Magnolias to get some cupcakes. It was a lot of fun trying to find it and seeing all the things along the way. Last night we were able to go to Chinatown to eat, and then walked around Battery Park. We were able to see ground zero, which was interesting for me, since the last time I was in that part of town was July of 2001. It was incredible to see. So far, the trip has been very enjoyable and I hope it continues.
