New York's former governor Andrew Cummo announced the New York State Cares+Baby2Baby diaper bank. In 2020 it was found that as many as 42% of toddlers living in low-income housing didn't have access to their basic needs especially after the Coronavirus pandemic hit. This program will make diapers available to New York’s Emergency Feeding Programs available at food banks throughout the state free for families. Leah
Street wear is one of the fastest growing categories in the fashion industry. It is the most diverse, inclusive and avant-garde sector to date. Established in 2019 and founded by Kyrone Ricketts, Ghetto Love is a streetwear brand that has sold out every time a collection is dropped. With an impressive following and the direct-to-consumer approach that has driven streetwear to its current status, Kyrone has his creative eyes moving in the right direction. His autonomous brand is headed straight to the top.

This work of art caught my attention because of the different details. This was displayed in Herald Square, Manhattan. The pumpkins remind me of Halloween with a twist of Thanksgiving. As you look closer, there is snow around it as well. Leaving the fall season coming into winter is amazing. I think this caught just that! Léah
While Concourse Village of the Bronx in NYC is filled to the brim with community, in certain areas, the architecture dulls the atmosphere. The simple red, beige, and grey buildings lined next to each other can dampen the view and feeling of the neighborhood though some buildings have more intricate designs. Thankfully, life gets rushed back into these places with the assortment of trees and shrubbery lining some blocks, providing shade, bright spots of color, cooling, and energy into the scene that surrounds them.

February 20, 2022. Our first Assignment for the interns was to attend and review the Brooklyn Museum's exhibit of Christian Dior. The collections flown in from Paris, provided a breath-taking insight into the fashion house that has been a titan in the fashion industry for three quarters of a century. One of the museum's most successful exhibits to date, the event was continuously sold out. We were lucky enough to get tickets. We asked our interns Kai and Amanda to attend and review their visit.
Read each of their descriptions (from left to right) below of what they saw and the photos they loved.
It was my first time visiting such an exhibit and I was stunned. When looking at these images I saw nothing but fairytale, hard work, love and uniqueness.
The beauty of the dresses is amazing. I was impressed by these three images because they were different. I'd never seen anything that looked like this.
If it hadn't sold out and it wasn't leaving today, I would have like to visit again.
When I stepped into the Christian Dior exhibit, it felt like I went back in time when one of the world's top fashion icons was at the top of his game. Visiting the exhibit allowed me to see how his journey in the industry began and what inspired the many looks that Christian Dior designed. It helped me understand different styles I’d never seen before. Seeing the actual garments
opened my eyes and mind to appreciate not only the designs but the special art and intricate work of the collections. What I loved most was the feeling of being in another era. I absolutely adore the old days, especially in NYC! It’s fun to revisit the past when fashion is involved or a good memory worth thinking about.
This experience was definitely that!
