Today, 19 years after her death, Pope Francis officially declared the Albanian Mother Teresa a saint as many remember when she visited The Bronx.
On one of those occasions, Saint Teresa of Kolkata, as she is now known, was visited by her friend, Princess Diana of Wales who flew in from DC just to meet up with her at the Missionaries of Charity’s order on 145th Street in Mott Haven—the first in North America of the order which she founded in 1950.

Yesterday we reported on the expansion of the landmarked Clocktower Loft Apartments and today we share the exclusive story of the first market-rate condominiums coming to the Lower Concourse Rezoning Area.
The old 2 story factories at 221 E 138th Street at Canal Place has been torn down and in its place will rise a 7 story, 50 unit condominium development with ground floor commercial space according to Anthony Gurino of Tahoe Development which purchased the buildings for $2,800,000 in September 2015.
Two weeks ago we reported on the artist selection process for the permanent public art for the new 40th Precinct which was held at The Bronx Documentary Center.
During last week’s presentation, we got a look into what the new 40th Precinct would look like slated for construction at its new location on 149th Street and St Ann’s in Melrose.

You are invited to The Bronx Documentary Center, tomorrow, Thursday January 28th for an exciting event!
The 40th Precinct is moving from its current location in Mott Haven at Alexander Avenue and 138th Street to a more central location in Melrose at 149th Street and St Ann’s as part of a $68.9 million modern facility.
As part of the new precinct, New York City’s Percent for Art, a division of the Department of Cultural Affairs, has been tasked with finding an artist who will work on a permanent art exhibition for the new 40th precinct.
