Last weekend I was hanging around my stoop and some people with gloves and plastic bags picking up trash walked by. I asked them who they were with, if maybe I missed a neighborhood cleanup, and it turns out they were from the church on the Adopt-a-Block sign on my block. They said they come down once a month or so and pick up trash.
Nice to see this, and it got me thinking -- maybe some other blocks could use an Adopt-a-Block group, like Irving between 14th and 13th, for example. Anybody see their block's adopt-a-block folks every now and then?
