  1. Awesome list! There’s stuff on there I haven’t done yet, can’t wait to get started!


  2. There’s – few things that should be added to that list:
    1) Join a victim advocacy group dedicated to rendering justice for children who are victims of sex crimes in the Bronx. If you were unaware, the Bronx is over saturated with pedophiles and sex offenders. This has more to do with family members who provide safe haven to their criminal relatives who have destroyed the lives of innocent victims than any halfway house or agency providing services. Bronxites must stop the cycle of abuse in our communities and purge our neighborhoods of the depravity of sexual violence. Get involved! Be vigilant!

    2) Thoroughly investigate all 501(c) 3 community based organizations before donating money or volunteering your time. You would be amazed at all of the fraud and malfeasance that goes on in some of these “community based organizations”…not to mention many of the centers in some of the most impoverished areas in the Bronx exploit the residents or pimp the unfortunate circumstances of community members for exposure as a means to increase donations and government funding. The Point in Hunts Point specifically comes to mind. Just recently Kelly Terrie Sepulveda testified before the United Nations Eco Soc Committee to discuss “economic injustice” in the South Bronx. She encouraged a young man to lie about his personal circumstances which left him homeless. The fact is, the “victim” of “economic injustice” who appeared before the UN Eco Soc Committee is the child of a con-artist “community organizer” by the name of Catrina McKinney Davis and the stepchild of Erick “E” Ridley, a pedophile and drug dealer who repeatedly raped and murdered his own sister. Ms Sepulveda is very friendly with both parents of her fellow “activist” and employee Darius Davis, who is now receiving a free ride to Dutchess County Community College based on a series of lies at the expense of the taxpayers.

    Darius and his parents were evicted from the home of none other than Majora Carter after they unsuccessfully attempted to invoke squatters rights.

    The Bronx will never be all it should be while thieving, lying, depraved opportunists and criminals feel right at home in a once great borrow. Economic Injustice is the result of poor decision making and a system that enables people to think that doing the bare minimum in the Bronx is enough to pay the bills.


  3. Wish there was more available in 10465 or 10461 area.


    1. Agreed! I live in that area and most of the things we find to do are because we create meetups ourselves-we have some great restaurants in our area and of course Pelham Bay park, but would love to see more things open up..not just here but all over the Bronx for families to go and have fun! As we continue to share what we do have and show interest, hopefully more will come!
