Here’s a wonderful historical account of two old theaters, both on Southern Boulevard, The Boulevard…
Arts & Culture
Don’t be fooled by the mainstream media: Arts & Culture is alive in our borough and The Bronx has been at the forefront of arts and culture for decades and isn’t something new to the borough. We’ve been creating and exporting the arts in all its disciplines as long as our borough has been around. From the founding of Hip-hop to fashion designers and major entertainment artists along with the visual and literary arts, we’ve been doing it.
We already knew that New York City’s REAL Little Italy in the Belmont section of The Bronx was the best by a long shot and now, the rest of the country will know Arthur Avenue as one of our country’s great streets.
Wandering through the streets of Belmont on Arthur Avenue and side streets, you soon realize what a special place this is.
The most authentic Little Italy in New York City, Arthur Ave, despite changing demographics, still offers a unique slice of Italian tradition and history.
Starting July 5th, New York City’s largest performing arts festival, SummerStage, will kick off their Bronx season.
From Latin Jazz to Hip Hop to Opera, Crotona and St Mary’s Parks will be lit with music!
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.
