Enjoy outdoor festivities on a car-free street as WHEDco and the Bronx Music Heritage Center (BMHC) shut down the streets for live performances, face painting, games, free health screenings, arts activities, and much more! Lets wrap up the summer in proper block party fashion.
WHEDco and Bronx Health Reach invites you, on Thursday, September 25th from 5:30PM – 7:00PM at DreamYard Project located at 1085 Washington Avenue (at 165th Street), to learn about the findings of the survey and give feedback on their findings.
As many Melrose residents and those who work here may recall, last year from Fall ’13 to Spring ’14 WHEDco and Bronx Health Reach conducted a survey which collected data from 1,000 people who live and or work within Melrose Zip Codes of 10451, 10455 and 10456. The survey asked many questions from health issues to safety to what types of amenities the community would like to see in the area.
Thanks to Elena Martinez of the Bronx Musical Heritage Center folks will have a spot to sit while waiting for the bus — and enjoy a variety of musical selections specially curated by Martinez herself.
Located at the Freeman Street Subway Station on the 2/5 line on the corner of Southern Boulevard and Louise Niñe Boulevard, ‘Boogie Down Bench’ is a project intended to give life to otherwise dormant spaces throughout the city and was one of the projects selected, specifically in areas under the subway El, bridges and overpasses.
Join the Bronx Music Heritage Center in celebrating living legend, DJ Kool Herc at a block party at 1303 Louis Nine Boulevard.
