Street Festival Highlights Need for Community Center

Mott Haven residents are hopeful they can convert an abandoned health clinic into a multi-purpose center that would benefit the community before the city allows developers to get their hands on it. Local groups entertained the crowd with health and education demonstrations, children’s activities and cooking lessons. A packed musical and dance performance line-up included traditional Puerto Rican plena, the UpBeat NYC Latin Jazz Big Band, Ballet Folklore Muuchxiimbal, Faculty Latin Jazz Band, and UpBeat NYC/Corona Youth Music Project Orchestras.
