Day 2: Red Hook, Brooklyn
"I think I'm lost," I said to myself. I couldn't find the number to the place I was assigned to. I ended up on 2nd Ave and 10th Street, a part of Brooklyn I'm clueless about. It's not like other areas I'm used to; there's a lot of construction and warehouses. Some streets are darker than others, some even isolated. I didn't know the walk from the train station to this place, I still haven't found, was so long. Despite these small mishaps, I did my usual, reflected and took pictures. I like to capture my journeys around town, even if I don't know where I'm going. I ended up calling the place, got the right directions, and took the bus there. It was a community center. I met a lady and gentleman who were very friendly and welcomed me. They showed me the gymnasium where piles of clothes were stacked high on tables. Sorting was my assignment.
"There's more to do and I plan to do my part in helping those in need."
