Welcome to this week’s Northeast Newscast where we sit down with outgoing Independence Plaza Neighborhood Council president Cynthia Herrington in a stream-of-consciousness and honest conversation about vulnerable issues in the neighborhood.

Residents are engaged with the Independence Plaza Neighborhood Council, enjoying amenities like three city parks. Its proximity to downtown offers access to culture and entertainment. The council drives initiatives for art, sustainable development, and more. Explore further on their social media: https://www.facebook.com/ipnckc/
