Within Reach

April 25, 2013

Narrative Journalism Workshop, Ithaca College -- Ithaca, NY


The red brick brightens as the early afternoon sun shines on the façade of the Greater Ithaca Activities Center. The steel and glass entranceway facing West Court Street splits the two-story structure down the middle. Two custodial workers cut and edge the grass that starts on the corner of West Court and North Albany Street, spewing blades of green along the sidewalk and the smell of cut grass into the air. The mower and edger clash with the sounds of construction farther down West Court. It’s warm in the sun, but a slight breeze warns one to wear a light jacket.


On the building hangs a white banner with a birthday cake covered by the words: “Happy Birthday...40 Years of Community.”
