North Bronx Thinktank
Preserving & Protecting our North Bronx
Rivieccio, Executive Director,
DID YOU KNOW THAT THERE ARE 2 Bronx’s WITH A MILLION RESIDENTS
The Bronx, New York & The Bronx Mall, on the Internet.
The Bronx Mall is NOT a new part of The Bronx but The Bronx
itself, in cyberspace.
It is a wonderful mastery of pages & links to provide unlimited
information, resources and tools for everything-ALL BRONX. And
guess what? 1.3 million people live in The Bronx. Almost 1
million people visit The Bronx Mall on the Internet.
I had my first experience with The Bronx Mall, in 1996, when I
was exploring the interactive world of The Bronx. Suddenly,
under www.bronxmall.com Walla!
As in ten years ago, today, what will first hit you is a
billboard encouraging you to visit “The Community Board Page”- a
resource of your community district monthly meetings, meeting
dates & community events. When you click, you are greeted by one
of its sponsors, Borough President Adolfo Carrion, who says on
“In the ‘90s, we recovered all the jobs lost in the ‘70s and
‘80s. In fact, since 1995, the Bronx has gained almost 18,000
jobs in total.
The twelve community boards
throughout The Bronx have played a vital role in this
resurgence. They are an important partner in government,
planning for their districts’ futures, and monitoring the
delivery of city services in their communities. I hope that you
will find the information posted on the community boards' web
pages to be helpful. Remember that the boards are here to serve
As a former Community Board Member, I can tell you that the
chief function of the Community Board is to serve as a vehicle
for resolving citizen complaints as it relates to city
government and the residents of the community.
On the left side of the page, you have special links to:
A Bronx Listing in over 50 industries, from finding a Bronx
accountant to selecting fine wine at your Bronx store
A follow up on your community district, including business
improvement districts, colleges, government employment, youth
programs, hospitals and of course, our circle of friends, The
Committee of 100 Democrats and First Step Woman’s Support Group.
A wonderful “on-line” newspaper of The Norwood News, including,
news, opinion, schools, features, continuing stories and,
amazingly, a “past Issues” section.
On the boroughs arts, music, theatre and environmental events,
including the Botanical Garden, Highbridge Voices The Loews
Paradise Theatre (Yes its open) & The Lehman College Performing
Calendar of Events-
For a FULL BRONX listing of; exhibits, clubs, day care,
libraries, special events, workshops, health fairs senior &
I know Barbara tries very hard to promote The Bronx Mall in many
events, as I see her spin, from event to event, from The South
Bronx to Fordham to Riverdale. She has done a great job getting
local & New York City media coverage, including, in The
Riverdale Press, the Bronx Times, This newspaper, The New York
Times & NY1.
The South Bronx Board of Trade honored Ms Tallerman in 2002 as
Businessperson of the Year.
The Real Creators of the Bronx Mall is a Bronx Based company
called “The I Word”. If you have never heard of them, they are
the creators of the website for The Newest Shopping Center in
The Bronx, at 225th & Broadway, River Plaza & Mosholu
Preservation Corporation. Just go to the internet and look them
up. Or even better, go to
www.bronxmall.com and visit ALL OF THE BRONX.
As The Bronx Mall goes into its 11 year, we can only hope it
succumbs to the very fate of The Bronx itself-a wonderful and
rich 200-year history of tradition, mosaic tranquillity and
community pride. I could be wrong but I think she has it going
in the right direction. Better yet, I will know tomorrow when I
look into The Bronx Mall for updated information on botanical
events. I am a greenie you know! For more information,
especially on those wonderful “internet advertising “
opportunities we all hear about, call Barbara Tallerman or The I
Word at 718.601.8772. Tell her Anthony says hello. Great Job
Bronx Mall-my second home in The Bronx!
