The pictures depicted here are of some of the many children on 55th Street. These children have grown up together since they were babies and are often more like siblings than friends.
You will see what spring time looks like on 55th Street: children playing on the trampoline, discovering baby animals, constructing indoor obstacle courses on rainy days, eating dinner and playing at one another’s houses, and the random baked goods that get passed out. It’s a wonderful thing to be around so many children but the best thing about 55th Street is the sense of community and family among all the neighbors.
