For the past 30 to 40 years the Bronx has received much negative press and it never seems to end.
What has ended is the fact that we, as Bronxites, no longer will remain quiet when our hometown is bashed, particularly without any real world and real-time facts.
I can go on forever on why I love the Bronx but this is really about you, the reader!
We want to know, in your own words, why you love the Bronx. You can post the comments below, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and it doesn’t just have to be just your words! Tell us in pictures or videos or Vines using the hash tag #whyilovethebronx on Instagram, Vine, twitter and Tumblr. Make sure to tag us too Welcome2TheBronx and #welcome2thebronx
This will be an ongoing project and we will feature one response a week so check back often to see if your response made it!
