Opening Reception: Bronx Junior Photo League Exhibition

Today, Friday June 3rd at 5pm, please join us at The Bronx Documentary Center for one of my favorite shows: The Bronx Junior Photo League year end exhibition.

This exhibition is the culmination of an intensive yet free after school photography class where the kids, who range from 11 to 18 years, display their photography and multimedia projects.

Through the hardworking volunteers and staff at the BDC, coupled with our youth’s thirst for knowledge, throughout the past several years, they have churned out quality and professional work that’s beyond impressive for their age.

Wine Tasting & The Splendor of 150,000 Daffodils Blooming at NYBG

Last November, 150,000 daffodil bulbs were planted at The New York Botanical Garden as part of their effort to create New York’s, “…most extensive display of daffodils,” spread across 4 acres and eventually totalling 1 million bulbs.

Now you can enjoy the resulting blooms along with some serious wine tasting on Saturday, April 23rd and Sunday, April 24th from Noon to 5PM.

3rd Annual Gentrification Conference This Sunday, Jan 10th

This Sunday from 2PM to 5PM, the 3rd Annual Bronx Gentrification Conference will be held, this time, at New Settlement Community Center at 1501 Jerome Avenue.

Since The Bronx Documentary began this series in December of 2012, speculation and gentrification have crept into our borough at a rapid rate despite our Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr denying that gentrification is happening.

2015 became the year that The Bronx was put up for sale and is being sold to the highest bidders not to mention the Piano District party and fiasco which has angered a borough.
