Daryl Strawberry, Cathy Moriarty-Gentile Launch Bronx Week

Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion kicked off Bronx Week 2007 today with Mets and Yankees legend Darryl Strawberry and actress Cathy Moriarty-Gentile at his side.
The event took place at the newly-named Utopia's Paradise Theater, the former Loew's Paradise Theater now operated by Utopia Studios, the company of Joseph Gentile, Moriarty's husband.

This year's Bronx Week activities include Bronx Trolley tours, a health fair, a salute to Community Emergency Rescue Team (CERT) volunteers, and the Bronx Ball, a black-tie affair scheduled for Saturday, June 23 at the Paradise Theater.

Daryl Strawberry was in the Bronx with Ray Negron, Yankees consultant and author of "The Boy of Steel," a children's book about a child with brain cancer who fulfills a lifelong dream by becoming a Yankees batboy for a day. Negron announced that he was turning the book into a play, and that Strawberry will act in the production. The two were headed to PS 150 in Hunts Point to sign books in the afternoon.

  1. Cathy Moriarity is great, but Darryl Strawberry is definitely scraping rockbottom. There are so many other sports heroes from the Yankees who are positive role models.

    I wonder why Don Kirshner or Mayor Koch haven't been invited to some of these high profile Bronx events. George Carlin is an incredible success story, as well. Judd Hirsh. Colin Powell.
