Last weekend’s Avenue L Block Party was hosted not only by the merchants of the popular shopping strip, but by State Senator John Sampson, Assemblyman Alan Maisel, the 69th Precinct Community Council and a host of commercial entities that put the wants and desires of the community citizens at the forefront, presenting rides, games, school supplies, food and an all-around good time for everyone. Of course, the weather cooperated fully, giving everyone a feeling that our happy community is well ahead of all the others in cultural festivities and, yes, pride.
