Under the cover of a tent, Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. officially kicked off Bronx Week this morning at the Centennial celebration of the Madison Avenue Bridge.
“The best week of the year in our borough is back. This time we have organized even more events, while keeping the traditional ones, to celebrate the beauty, culture, talent and development of our neighborhoods and their residents. Let’s all celebrate The Bronx!” said Diaz Jr.
Bronx Week is organized by the Bronx Tourism Council and the Bronx Overall Economic Development Corporation, and sponsored primarily by Montefiore Medical Center and HealthPlus, in association with Con Edison, Affinity Health Plan, Verizon, Emblem Health, the Bronx CUNY Colleges, AmeriChoice, Citi, BronxNet, WBLS, Domino’s Pizza, and the New York Daily News.
