Calling All Bronxites, Poets, Writers or Those Just Filled With Bronx Pride!


A few days ago we posted a reply to the misguided New York Magazine article by Ben Wallace-Wells—a former Bronxite—who felt that The Bronx was lacking an identity and was so far behind in the image department when it came to the other boroughs.

Readers’ response has been so tremendous that we’re asking YOU to tell us in your own words what The Bronx means to you.

You can do this via poetry, writing, or video, and submit to us at so we can show the world that we know who we are and don’t need others to define it for us.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
