We’re excited that construction is underway for the new Mary Soo Hoo Park on Hudson St, right next to the Chinatown Gate. We’re been hoping for and working on improvements to this corner of our neighborhood over the years. (See our cases above Improving Gateway Park and Tending a Vacant Lot.)
Now, we’re experimenting with Flickr and Twitter as a way to follow the progress of the park, learning along the way about how to post photos of the construction (and how kids should be careful about photos online). You can follow the kids’ Flickr Stream here. Twitter is here.
Can we use these online tools as a means to an end, without getting distracted by the means? I think we can.
