WNYC features a "block of the week" to a community that has made an effort to improve their own neighborhood.
The Lucky Knights, a youth baseball league sponsored by the Police Athletic League clean up a dirty lot to create a ball field. The lot had become a dangerous dumping ground for the neighborhood and was full of litter.
Interview with two of the boys from the Lucky Knights and Nick Allison of the Police Athletic League. The clean up efforts benefited from the Herald Tribune's "Clean-up Campaign."
