But we're doing reality tv Bronx-style up here in the BoogieDown- Discovery Channel's show 911: The Bronx follows the staff of the emergency room at St. Barnabas Hospital as they treat "alcohol and drug abuse patients, gunshot and stabbing victims, STD's, etc" [http://www.foilball.com/911-the-bronx-reality-tv-gets-real/].
The folks over at foilball.com (where we found out about this show) tout the show because of its genuine depiction of the St. Barnabas medical staff's dedication to saving lives and serving the community's healthcare needs.
One thing BoogieDowner is confused about: both foilball.com and this Daily News article refer to St. Barnabas Hospital as being in the South Bronx. It's located at 183rd Street and Third Avenue, which is decidedly not the South Bronx.
There are two more episodes of 911: The Bronx which will air 11/4 and 11/11 at 12pm. We've already missed the first three!
Sounds like quite an intriguing show... although I'm gunna guess it probably won't go a far way in helping to improve the PR image of the BoogieDown.
