BronxNet is coming to The Hub.
The borough’s long-established media concern has opened an office at 2825 Third Avenue, with a boost from local students. High school student artists collaborated with Bronx artists Laura Alvarez and Karen ‘KayLove Pedrosa, to paint a mural to welcome BronxNet’s upcoming studios and media labs.
BronxNet will work out of the facility until it is ready to move into a permanent studio at La Central on Bergen Avenue. That multi-use complex is slated to open 2021, with nearly 1,000 apartments in addition to community and retail space.
In a portion of Ms. Alvarez’ description of the mural she is creating at BronxNet with her students she stated, “The burning heart is the resilience of the borough, represented in words and that will become a graffiti mural with ‘We Are The Bronx’ over the cleaner Bronx River and more green spaces. We can envision a better Bronx if we get educated and fight for what is right.”
BronxNet, an independent nonprofit, offers programming on six cable TV channels. For more information about the organization, go to www.bronxnet.org.
