President Clinton Urges Struggling Bronxites to Hang On

Last night, more than 1,000 guests attended an invitation-only event in honor of Black History Month, at the Dreiser Loop Community Center in Co-op City.

The keynote speaker was former President Bill Clinton, who received a heartfelt welcome from the crowd, less than a week after being hospitalized.

Clinton recalled the devastation he witnessed in Haiti and told Bronxites struggling in the weakened economy (the borough has the state's highest unemployment rate) to hang on.
