Concourse Crusader Exhibits Photos

Carl Rosenstein has put his love for the Grand Concourse's art deco architecture into pictures. The Manhattan-based photographer's work is on display at Fordham University's Walsh Library through the end of June. The exhibit features 13 large photos by Rosenstein and 20 small illustrations and pictures gathered from the archives of the Bronx County Historical Society and other sources. Rosenstein and other preservationists want to draw attention to the Grand Boulevard and Concourse, which is home to the largest collection of art deco apartment buildings in the world, so that it can be declared a historic district by the city Landmarks Preservation Commission. Supporters of such a designation include the Bronx borough president, the Historic Districts Council and the Bronx Landmarks Task Force. For more information on the exhibit, call 817-3570.
