Team Soldier Boy

Community events connect children and fight negative effects of gentrification


Gentrification is a growing issue within NYC neighborhoods, as new and old residents struggle to find common ground, and chains replace small businesses.

Children, however, are blind to these disparities, and are open to building life-long relationships and feel a sense of unified ownership of their community.

Neighbor Jams is an ongoing series of events and block parties, with specially designed activities to connect children, and by extension, their families.
