After years of construction a Bronx community center opens its doors
After years of anticipation, the NETS Community Center on Virginia Avenue finally opened Tuesday. Two years ago, Assemblyman Peter M. Rivera won a grant to build the Neighborhood Enhancement Training and Services Center in Parkchester. Now that construction is complete, more than 40 Bronx residents will start a six-week GED program. The center, which cost an estimated $800,000 to build, will also offer programs for children and seniors in the area. Sign up is underway and classes are expected to begin in November.
