On Sunday, November 9th, GrowNYC hosted its first Lower East Side Family Portrait Day event at three community gardens. 

Professional photographers set up in each garden to take free family portraits of more than 300 local families.  The event also featured face painting, a winter coat drive, sampling from the nearby Tompkins Square Greenmarket, and CFL lightbulb giveaways by Go Green Lower East Side.  The Sierra Club and Grand Street Settlement co-sponsored the event and provided additional programming.

The organizer of the event, GrowNYC's Mike Rezny, said that the event was a huge success and that GrowNYC looks forward to doing similar events in the future.
