BATH BEACH — Crews of volunteers that Assemblymember William Colton (D-47) and City Councilmember Susan Zhuang (D-43) organized took to 86th Street last Saturday, June 22 in the first of the pair’s community cleanups for 2024. About 60 volunteers of young and elderly residents turned out for the cleanup, bracing against extreme weather and armed with brooms, rakes and shovels. Together, they cleared catchbasins and pulled up weeds during the three-hour event, which took place along the 86th street corridor between 14th and 24th Avenues in Bath Beach.

“I was delighted with the turnout, as well as the results, and also extremely pleased by the number of people who expressed interest in joining us in future cleanups. These volunteer cleanups send another important message: small efforts can add up to big results and make a significant difference in the quality of life,” said Colton.
