This month marked the beginning of Fresh Air summer vacations for hundreds of New York City children, including many Brooklyn residents.
The excited youngsters, pictured with the Fresh Air Fund’s Executive Director Jenny Morgenthau, left Port Authority Bus Terminal to visit volunteer host families in rural and suburban communities throughout 13 Northeastern states and Canada. They will enjoy up to two weeks or more of simple summertime pleasures such as skipping rocks across a lake, roasting marshmallows and making new friends.
