On Monday Bronx Borough President Vanessa L. Gibson joined the Bronx Tourism Council, Humana, Essen Health Care and other community partners to host a media preview and celebration to kick-off Bronx Week 2022 at the Northeast Bronx YMCA.
As a highlight of the event, Gibson and The Bronx Tourism Council will announce the three honorees that will be inducted into the Bronx Walk of Fame Class of 2022. Since 1997, the Bronx Walk of Fame has served as the premier honor that can be bestowed upon any Bronx native, with past luminaries including Prince Royce, Chazz Palmintieri, Fat Joe, Swizz Beats and several others.
The theme of this year’s Bronx Week is “History in the Making,” celebrating the historic significance of the first woman and African American to serve in the role of Bronx borough president at the newly constructed and first
YMCA in the Bronx in over 30 years. Bronx Week takes place May 5 through 14. There will be a series of events from every sector of the community including senior activities, small business networking, family, health, finance, and more.
