Native Bronxite Sonia Manzano, who has played Maria on Sesame Street for more than three decades, has been a long-time supporter of the Bronx River Alliance and often appears at their events and fundraisers.
But on Saturday she brought along several of her Sesame Street pals to perform in River Park at 180th Street and Boston Road. Here are some photos (Sonia Manzano is at center of group picture below). For more information on the Bronx River Alliance, go to bronxriver.org. (Photos by Jordan Moss)
P.S. Sonia signed my daughter's copy of her children's book, "No Dogs Allowed," and informed us that it is being turned into a musical this fall. If you live in the Bronx and you've got kids, this is an amazing book.
