Two of these photographs are of my neighbors back yard. They are really big backyards but unfortunately they are filled with trash. I want to change this because in the summer I would like to take advantage of the fact I have a backyard in New York City and use it in the summer. If I do this I know that I will have to motivate my neighbors to clean up their property, because once it starts to get hot the garbage will start to smell and lots of bugs will be around it making it nearly impossible to actually spend time out there. I feel like this is possible to change, I just have lead the effort. I would be willing to help clean up some of the garbage but I wont do it alone.
The other photo is of a brick building near BCC. I wish that I could organize a group of artist to make a community mural. I think that murals make the city unique, vibrant, and beautiful. I have also noticed that when murals are created, people are less likely to vandalize a building with unnecessary graffiti when there is beautiful art. I feel that it is possible to do this, I would just have to organize the students and art department so we can contact the right people that could help make this happen.
