The Bronx Dreams Big

Imagine the day when you tell someone that you are from the Bronx and don’t: step back, grin or say “oh you don’t look like you are from the Bronx.”Imagine the day that the stigma of the Burning Bronx is washed away.
Imagine the day that we can say, “We are going to the Bronx Children’s Museum!”
That day is almost here.
The Bronx Children’s Museum is set to open its doors by 2013.
Today, I attended a forum for the museum at Bronxworks, Inc. (The old C. A. B. building on the Grand Concourse…. I have no idea when that change happened.) BronxMama.com shared the information about the forum on her web-site.
It’s was very interesting to see the grass-root group trying to make this museum really happen. It is no longer a dream…
They have found a space where the museum will be created. It will be at the Parks Department Building J off of Mill Pond Park near the new Yankee Stadium and the Gateway Mall.
What does the Bronx Children’s Museum need right now?
They are seeking community input.
They are listening to Bronx families to shape the face of the museum.
Go to their website to see how your family’s voice can be hear.
