45th Precinct Easter Egg-Stravaganza

By Robert Press

It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon, and there were hundreds of different color plastic Easter Eggs scattered around in an area of Ferry Point Park waiting for children to pick them up and see what was inside. This was the 45th Precinct, 45th Precinct Community Council and Throggs Neck Community Alliance annual Easter Egg-Stravaganza. 

This years event was even more special as New York City Mayor Eric Adams attended and was the official Easter Egg Hunt opener. Mayor Adams was joined by Councilwoman Marjorie Velazquez, and Bronx Borough President Vanessa L. Gibson. Angela Torres the Executive Director of the Throggs Neck Community Alliance was the emcee of the event with 45th Precinct Community Council President Robert Bieder, 45th Precinct Commanding Officer Captain Johnny Orellana, and Community Affairs Officer Rivera. 


Mayor Eric Adams arrived on time as he heads for the stage to be welcomed.
