South Slope Rewind
Child Statue

Finding words to express the horror felt by millions around the world in the wake of last week’s Newtown tragedy is next to impossible. There are ways to show your support to the families in Connecticut affected by this senseless act of violence, though. Newtown Youth and Family Services, United Way and Newtown Parent Connection are all accepting donations on the town’s behalf. Please visit their websites for more information on how you can help.

Keep up to date with the neighborhood all week by subscribing to our newsletter, liking us on Facebook, following us on Twitter, joining our Flickr group, and if you have questions or tips, email us at
