New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg delivered his annual State of the City address on Thursday at Morris High School in the Bronx. In addition to the mayor’s focus on education, he also highlighted the Four Bronx Institution Alliance partnership that includes the Garden.
We’ll begin re-zoning East Fordham Road to allow for more private sector investment and explore economic development possibilities on Webster Avenue. To do that, we’re working with a group of neighbors we call the Bronx Quad: The New York Botanical Garden, the Bronx Zoo, Montefiore Medical Center and of course, the emerging basketball powerhouse, Fordham University.
