Art Young Cartoons

Patsy Margolin, a country singer, a student of Ravi Shankar, and a colleague of mine in the beginning fight to save the community park and garden, La Plaza Cultural, which led to the bigger battle of saving all community gardens in NYC, gave me a book of Art Young cartoons that I cherish and remember her by. The more things change, the more they are the same. It’s astounding how relevant these century old cartoons, that I have scanned from the book, are today.

Patsy too, in her successful struggle to save the park, La Plaza Cultural—although she didn’t live to see it—remains today.
