    This was my old neighborhood until 1976, by which time, most of the buildings in the area were abandoned. It is remarkable to see all the new construction in the Bronx. In the photo, I can see a building on the former site of an apartment that was likely destroyed.

    Too many buildings are needlessly demolished, but this is a mercy killing.

  3. Finding something to lament here is quite a challenge. The Jerome rezoning has been quite a sucesss story so far.

  4. Next to a noisy, dirty El, in a neighborhood devoid of parks and two blocks from the Jerome Ave exit / entrance to the Cross Bronx Expo. Quite a success ?
