Jasmine’s New York Photo Journal

new york city, times square, selfie

It has been a tradition of my grandad ever since I can remember to go every first weekend of August to his old neighborhood in the Bronx to the Old Timers Tournament at Forest Playground. I remember going with him one year and saw how much it meant to him to catch up with old friends from high school and watch the neighborhood kids compete in the basketball tournament. When my grandad passed in 2013 my family Β decided we wanted to go to his Old Timers Reunion every year to represent him. Β We also have our own family reunion because my Titi (my grandad’s sister) and my cousins live in New York. This year I was able to capture some of the moments as we explored New York!Β
