Boricua College Bronx Campus from Inception to Realization

Here is a photo taken today from a roof top of a building on Fulton Ave. The view faces south overlooking the South Bronx and the new Boricua College campus. I juxtaposed it with a video below of the project when it was in its inception stage. The project is a massive development for the community and an example of the rejuvenation happening in the South Bronx.

I like your blog. I hope to see the Boricua College campus this summer if I go to New York.

I was born in the Bronx, now I live in Georgia. I still love to know what's going on in the borough.
