Watch: Who Makes The Bronx?

Bronxite Giacomo Francia has a documentary project called ‘Who Makes The Bronx’ and recently had a beautiful segment published in The New York Times which you can watch right here.

The series takes a look particularly of workers along Jerome Avenue, an area of our borough that is threatened by displacement as a major rezoning looms over the area.

Giacomo’s work is critical in not only examining the local cultures and people who are threatened by New York City’s poor judgement in destroying our neighborhood but sadly as a way to preserve the histories when the city eventually gets its way.
