Seniors born and raised in the Bronx return to their old stomping grounds
It's been decades since they've been back to their old neighborhoods, but more than 50 members of the Bronxites Club returned for a visit Tuesday. The club is made up of seniors, now living in New Jersey, who used to call the Bronx their home. They met at a senior community and realized that they all shared a common bond of being born and raised in the Bronx. Members of the club visited Arthur Avenue, which many say they haven?t seen in nearly 30 years. They say while the avenue has changed, their memories are still the same. The Bronx Borough president is calling on the seniors to recount their memories, which will be put in a book and made part of Bronx history.
