Bronx Memories & Barbecue / by Eric Etheridge

Danny Barber grilling ...

at Morrisania Air Rights Family Day where the COCOON had a table.

We talked with people about COCOON the artwork and people contributed to a memory map ... remembering talent shows at night in the old basketball court, going into labor, first grand kids, sadness over losing friends to gun violence, weddings and first jobs, first apartments and long time friendships and neighbors helping each other out.

TA President Chaney Yelverton ran the show, DA Darcel Clark and James Santos (DA Community Engagement Coordinator) visited and Danny Barber did the grilling. And yes there was music, dancing and a bouncy house. 

COCOON will have a table Jackson Family Day -- Saturday tomorrow. Stop by. Add your memory to the neighborhood memory map.
