Scenes From the Jerome Street Fair

The second annual street festival on Jerome Avenue in Norwood, organized by the Jerome-Gun Hill Business Improvement District (BID) drew thousands of neighborhood and Bronx residents for a day of concerts on two stages, food and merchandise vendors, community services and a basketball match between hip-hop and R&B artists. Festival goers also had the opportunity to recycle unwanted computer and electronic equipment through a program organized by Sustainable South Bronx and Per Scholas. The effort netted three large pallets of equipment.

The BID gave out community service awards to Raymond Rooney, former commander of the 52nd Precinct (far left); Jacqueline Thomas, principal of PS 94 (second from left); and business leader Harold Citron (center). Also pictured are Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz (third from left); Dart Westphal, president of Mosholu Preservation Corp.; Roberto Garcia, the BID's executive director; and Council Member Oliver Koppell, who along with Council Majority Leader Joel Rivera, presented the BID with proclamations declaring Sept. 20 
"Jerome-Gun Hill BID Day."
