Take a paper ornament to remember 3/11/11

If you see this beautifully decorated tree in McCarren Park today, feel free to take an ornament in remembrance of the Earthquake and Tsunami that devastated Japan on 3/11/11.

No. 13th and Bedford Ave

Tsuru Project Greenpoint decorated the tree – located near No. 13th and Bedford Ave – with colorful paper ornaments.

Aya Kakeda said, “we want people to take these ornaments with them and decorate their home for memorial and to remember the people in Japan who lost their family and are still suffering.”

After living in NYC my entire life, I found the strongest sense of community in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Running this blog is truly an honor and the best part is meeting its readers in real life. Everyday I am energized by smiles and inspiring conversations with fellow Greenpointers who tirelessly do and create incredible things that are good for our community and share the same love I have for life here. If you see me walking with my little dog "D" - please say hi!
