Many are probably not aware that the Muslim community in the Bronx has grown substantially in the last few years. Just from my observations, I believe most are West Africans that have migrated predominately to the neighborhoods in the South West Bronx; Highbridge, Lower Grand Concourse. Ironically, they have landed in Bronx communities I believe will have the greatest "monetary appreciation" in the next decade. In addition to becoming small business owners, many are active participants in their community civic organizations.
As a testament to their presence, community activism and reverence, the Bronx Borough President will sponsor “Breakfast with Your Neighbor this Ramadan” on Thursday, August 25th, 2011. For anyone interested in attending here are the details;
