The Raven #2: Bronx Stories

172nd and Townsend Ave.

Block Party

Every summer there is a special day in which we celebrate the unity of our block, which we call a block party. A block party is when we close Townsend Avenue and use our grill to cook and listen to the music as we dance. Its fun at block parties especially when your family joins you and visits to relax and enjoy the capturing and the engaging exciting moments.

We laugh and play, we dance and sing, we bond and smile, we have fun while doing it. I love the block parties because I get to relax in front of my building while smelling the wonderful smell of barbecue.
