Ms. Gizmo at the East Harlem Teen Fair

Ms. Gizmo returned today to a favorite place – the East Harlem Teen Fair, organized each August by City Council Member Melissa Mark-Viverito with other sponsors.  Teen Service agencies set up information tables along East 104th Street and every year the turnout grows.

In this family setting, teenagers and young adults learn about options to the military recruiters who abound in that neighborhood. There’s music and entertainment, and the Grannies are always greeted with a warm reception.
