Bronx Documentary Center
Sorry, Brooklyn and Manhattan, but you’re not the only two boroughs filled with innovative artistic experiences. The Bronx Documentary Center is a photography, new media, and film sanctuary located on the south side that offers an array of film screenings, photography exhibits, book signings, and more. Aspiring photographers and filmmakers can take part in the center’s hands-on workshops (the next one is hosted by award-winning photojournalists Carolyn Cole and Todd Heisler, on November 8), or partake in biweekly meetings with other like-minded individuals. 

Bronx Documentary Center, 614 Courtlandt Avenue (at East 151st Street), Bronx; 718-993-3512.
