This past Monday, April 29, marks six months since Superstorm Sandy pummeled the east coast and caused extensive damage at Solar One and Stuyvesant Cove Park. But things are starting to come back because our stage is being rebuilt, and the plants that survived are sprouting up in the Park. We’re now looking forward to continuing to rebuild and produce an exciting summer of events, activities and lovely days in the Park.
As you can see in the picture, the stage is being rebuilt by carpenter Joey Rizzolo and a fantastic team of volunteers from Green City Force, a service organization that teaches young adults sustainable job skills. GCF has a long and wonderful history with the Solar One family: Their very first pilot corps, back in 2009, worked on a weatherization project with our parent organization, the Community Environmental Center, to celebrate National Weatherization Day.
We’ll be posting some new pictures of the Park and its spring progress soon!
