EHS Volunteers Tidy Up Cadman Plaza Park For Earth Day

Those damn water-balloon dropping neighborhood college kids! No, wait… those lovely, responsible pillars of tomorrow’s society. Yeah, that’s it… Educational Housing Services (EHS) roused 40 area students to help tidy Brooklyn Heights’ Cadman Plaza Park last Sunday, April 21, Earth Day eve. Volunteers represented neighborhood institutes Baruch College, Berkeley College, John Jay College, Long Island University, New York Career Institute, St. Francis College, and St. Joseph’s College.

“More than 40 volunteers helped clean up Brooklyn Heights, which was a great way to support our planet during Earth month,” says Maria Giraldo, EHS Student Life Coordinator. “All were inspired by a common will to clean up the beautiful neighborhood and give back to our earth.”

Brooklyn Heights is home to hundreds of EHS residents, particularly with the EHS St. George Residence at Henry and Clarks streets.

The non-profit Educational Housing Services Inc. has provided off-campus housing in NYC for college students and interns since 1987.

    Good job! Glad to have you in the neighborhood. BUT stop smoking or if you must, please don’t throw your butts on the sidewalk. Thanks.

    Wait a minute! Chuck says they helped clean up Cadman Plaza Park, but then writes, “… volunteers helped clean up Brooklyn Heights…” says Maria Giraldo, EHS Student Life Coordinator. “… inspired … to clean up the beautiful neighborhood”.

    Yeah, good of them to clean up this filthy slum. Hope they picked up their butts—read that both ways—in the process.

    Even when they do something good for the community, you have to prove yourself to be the neighborhood’s premier curmudgeon, Andrew!
