Despite Weather, Hundreds of Bronxites Gather to Unite Against (Cromwell) Jerome Avenue Study Area

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and City Planning have a rough road ahead with Bronx residents.

Last night, hundreds of residents from within the Jerome Avenue Study Area (estimates had the crowd at at least 400 attending despite the weather), gathered to join in solidarity against a rezoning that the community feels is not about them or with them. Residents and community groups are so concerned yet so organized they have even formed a group and an umbrella alliance of all stakeholders calling themselves ‘Bronx Coalition for a Community Vision’.
