In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, Mount Hope Housing Company is holding an event tonight at the Davidson Center (1822 Davidson Ave.). It starts at 6 p.m. There will be music, speeches, and free food.

Also tonight, a public hearing to address residents' concerns about the building of a citywide homeless intake center on Walton Avenue in Concourse Village. More here. Residents opposing the project have the support of Community Board 4 and State Senator Jose M. Serrano.


  1. the event at Mt Hope is too late to put on my schedule, but keep blogging about events in the Bronx. I can cover them at harlemnewsgroup.com , Bronx section.

    It's so hard finding out what is going on.

  2. Howie,

    If you want to get info about upcoming Mount Hope Housing Company events e-mail Candy at candyrose_cotto@mounthopehousing.org and ask to be added to their e-mail list.

    I agree, it can be hard to find out what's going on. In the coming weeks we're going to be better about posting events/ announcements, so please check back.
