Who needs to be the new Brooklyn? The South Bronx’s denizens — up-and-coming fashion designers and media entrepreneurs among them — are trying to harness inevitable gentrification to create a future for the area they call home. I love watching what’s taking place in the birthplace of hip-hop and graffiti. The Bronx has a lot of history, and it’s exciting to see what it’s turning into. It’s a classic New York story: engaging, ever changing and inspiring. My hope is that this neighborhood remains inclusive for all to enjoy.
