"To discover
the seemingly endless variety of enthusiasms pursued by New
Yorkers, whether they were carried from immigrants' cultures
from overseas or indigenous to the city landscape.



These are real New Yorkers who have found fascinating ways to
unleash their joy on the roofs and rivers and parks and streets
of New York." (From site. View more at the link below.)

This is activism because it is revealing. It shares stories and experiences of strangers--it's an exercise in community-building. The painting to the left is Gregory, and in addition to his portrait his story is told here.
