Scenes From Henry Street’s Block Party – Plus Cake Baking Victors!

Must Read

Photos by Tim Schreier.

We had a great time taking part in Henry Street Settlement’s old fashioned block party yesterday, in honor of founder Lillian Wald’s 145th birthday.   The zumba dance party was a big hit, as you’ll see from the photos posted here. Traven and I even got to help judge our first cake baking contest!  Jilian Besemer and Chris McKeever won first-prize for their floral cake “Lilies for Lillian.” Second prize was awarded to Peggy Coon for a banana cake, and third place went to Kira Wizner ( help from her daughters Leilani and Cecily) for a cake entitled Lillian’s Journal.

The Henry Street staff was busy throughout the afternoon giving tours of the organization’s historic main building, which is in the running for a $200,000 preservation grant.  Right now, Henry Street and the Tenement Museum are running neck and neck.
