Celebrating A Bronx Woman Who Selflessly Gives So Much To The Bronx

The Bronx is full of activists and people who are always doing things for our beautiful borough, always giving back.

But there’s one special woman who does so much without much fanfare, and oftentimes goes unnoticed by many since fame or fortune isn’t her endgame.

It’s about leaving The Bronx, our beautiful borough, a better place than we inherited it from our previous generation so that future generations can live safely, in an environmentally sound Bronx.

That woman is Nilka Martell.

Residents Celebrate The Bronx River

Last night at Bronx River Alliance 2015 Assembly, Bronxites came out to Hostos Community College to celebrate one of our most precious resources: The Bronx River.

Much like The Bronx, the river itself has gone through its ups and downs and is going through some major transformations and last night, residents were able to watch some slideshow presentations catch up on some of the bigger projects going on including the construction of Bronx River House which will be the new home of the Bronx River Alliance once it opens (hopefully) in October of this year.

The Rebirth of The Bronx Waterfront at Clason Point

For decades, The Bronx was an ignored environmental mess but for the last 20 years major groups have been working on restoring our ecology and environment. The Wall Street Journal reports on the rebirth of our waterfront at the mouth of The Bronx River which for years was just a wasteland.

Whether it’s the Harlem River in the South Bronx or up in Riverdale, our parks or the Bronx River, thousands of Bronxites are working hard on a daily basis with many organizations to clean and preserve our beautiful borough. We are, after all, the greenest of the 5 boroughs with 25% of our land as parks.

New York State Proposes Prioritization of Mott Haven-Port Morris Waterfront Plan!

This is an amazing big step forward for the residents of the South Bronx as never before has this area received such a priority designation by the State of New York. The waterfront plan as described below is a direct result of what the residents envision their waterfront to look like after the announcement over 2 1/2 years ago that FreshDirect intended to plop down on the last, largest remaining parcel of open land in the area.

Together, our voices can make an impact and be heard.

Meet Your Bronx Bloggers Tonight At The Gun Hill Brewing Company!

Back when I first started blogging in 2009, the Bronx pretty much just had a couple of active bloggers — the original BoogieDowners Erin and Lou Cicalese who started actively blogging in 2008 and Nicole Perrino, founder of BronxMama who also started in ’08.

Mountaintop: What Bronx Community College’s Campus Means

Did you know that Bronx Community College occupies one of the highest points in the whole Bronx? Do you know how this school came to occupy that location? 2014 is the 40th anniversary of Bronx Community College’s (BCC) first full year at the campus we know today. A distinguished African-American educator oversaw the move from scattered buildings around Jerome Avenue to the high and architecturally distinguished place it now occupies; his name was Dr. James A. Colston!
