Dear Neighbor,


We did it! Thank you to everyone who joined us for Bronx Week 2023! Thank you for making this year's celebration a special and memorable experience. We poured our all into these events and we are so grateful to our Bronx community for showing up the last two weeks!

Thank you to all of our partners for their collaboration and dedication to Bronxites; and a special thank you to The Bronx Tourism Council, Bronx Economic Development Corporation, Montefiore Einstein, the Bronx Community Foundation, JP Morgan and Chase CO., BronxNet, Pix11, News12 and Schneps Media who worked with our team at Borough Hall to ensure that Bronx Week 2023 was successful. We look forward to seeing all of you next year as we celebrate everything and everyone that makes the Bronx a primer destination. 

The festivities continue tomorrow. Join us as we host our first Bronx Taste of Africa event at Bronx Community College from 12PM-5PM. We look forward to seeing you there!

Lastly, we are proud to announce that the Bronx Economic Development Corporation will award up to $1 million to any Bronx-based college or university to develop creative climate-focused projects that address on-campus sustainability and work to establish efforts to address the Bronx's environmental challenges.

Congratulations to this year’s Bronx Week 2023 Walk of Fame honorees: SWV, Sunny Hostin, Juliet Papa, God-Is Rivera, and our first People’s Choice Award Winner, Principal Luis Eladio Torres!

Congratulations as well to our Key to the Borough recipients, MC Sha Rock and Cold Crush Brothers! Hip hop luminaries representing the very best of the Bronx.

Lastly, a huge thank you to the Bronx Zoo and Wildlife Conservation Society for hosting our Bronx Ball Gala and Celebration for the first time in Bronx Week history.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our Bronx Week Bankers Breakfast!

Our banks are so important to the health of our local economy. They provide Bronxites with opportunities to invest and save, and create a pathway to the middle class.

We were approved for the SBA community advantage program to approve loans from $5,000 to $350,000 for businesses that typically would not receive them. This opportunity will pour into the economy of our Borough.

Thank you to Villa Barone for hosting us and to our sponsors for helping make this event possible.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our Prom Dress and Suit Giveaway! We value our youth and understand the significance of Prom Season.

This is a special time for our students, and we wanted them all to feel their very best.

It really takes a village. With the help of our volunteers and donors, we were able to service nearly 1,000 students!

Thank you for joining us for Bronx Week 2023 Film at the Pregones Theatre for a screening of Kiss the Ground!

Arts and advocacy go hand-in-hand. Kiss the Ground was inspiring! It was a reminder that we have the solution to climate change and sustainability right beneath our feet.

Thank you to Pregones Theatre, and Bronx Swab for collaborating with us for this wonderful event.
