A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of attending Bronx photographer Dondre Green’s photo exhibition Bronx Narratives. The exhibit featured photographs of people both living and visiting the Bronx, all giving Green short anecdotes of their time in the home of the best pizza in the city; Green’s goal with the photo series and exhibit was to shed a light on New York City’s most northern borough, one with a rich history that many feel is becoming forgotten with all the attention paid to Brooklyn and Manhattan. During the exhibit, Green shared a short documentary where he spoke to various residents of The Bronx. The documentary is the second installment of his Bronx Narratives series; the people featured in this documentary short are all from various backgrounds, bringing to light the diversity the Bronx still has over many other parts of New York.
