LES Stories: Chalking the LES returns!
Kicking off LES History Month, May 1 & 2 sees volunteers, local organizations, and residents of all ages in chalking LES history, memories and trivia on the pavements of the LES. You can do your own thing or if you’re new and would like more guidance to chalk, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join us each morning of May 1 & 2 at First Street Green for light morning refreshments before we head off to chalk various neighborhood sites.
LES Stories is inspired by Ruth Sergel’s citywide public art project, CHALK, which remembers the 146 garment workers who lost their lives in the infamous 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire.
