Dear Neighbor,


Thank you for joining us for another week in review!


The Bronx Summer Concert Series is in full swing! We kicked off our iconic series with a concert at Orchard Beach, paying homage to the Series' home for the last 20 years! Due to scheduled renovations of the Orchard Beach Pavillion, this year, we're bringing the music and dancing to all corners of the Bronx. Be sure to join us and stay tuned for more summer activities! For an updated calendar of events, click here.

Also, we hope you will volunteer with us for the Bronx Summer Clean Up Series 2023. Volunteers get free tickets to a Yankees game as a thank-you for their hard work! Cleaner streets and community engagement are important to us, and we’re proud to support this important annual cleanup series alongside partners. For information on how to get involved, click here.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 718-590-3500 or email us at


In partnership,

Bronx Borough President Vanessa L. Gibson



I joined with Bronx DA Darcel Clark, Assistant Chief Philip Rivera, local elected officials and cure violence organizations to condemn the gun violence we witnessed over the July 4th holiday weekend.

In the Bronx, we saw 16 shooting incidents involving 25 shooting victims including 2 young girls.

This is unacceptable. Bronxites deserve to walk in their neighborhoods without fear of being shot at. We will not stop fighting until these guns are off our streets.

Thank you to our Bronx DA, NYPD, and our cure violence organizations who are on the ground doing the work and preventing violence every day. Lastly, thank you to Mayor Eric Adams for allocating nearly $200 million for programming to reduce gun violence in communities and connect New Yorkers with city-funded services, including school conflict mediation, violence interruption, non-traditional therapeutic services, and more.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our very first Bronx Summer Concert of the season! The energy was incredible!

Thank you to our performers Luis Damon, Luisito Ray y La Dynamica, Charlie Cruz and DNX4 for giving it their all! Thank you for sharing your talent with us.

Lastly, thank you to our sponsors for working with us to bring this event to Bronxites.

In partnership with Disability Unite, we were proud to launch Disability Pride Month at Borough Hall.

We are intentional in this work to provide access and opportunities for people living with disabilities from employment to housing, to equitable transit and investments in our infrastructure.

We recognize July as Disability Pride Month in our City and remain committed to amplifying the voices of our advocates and ensuring that we fulfill our priorities to support the community. Thank you to our community partners for their presence and participation.
