Back In THE BRONX

Founded in 1992, “Back In THE BRONX” began as a humble periodical to keep a handful or readers entertained with stories about growing up in their favorite borough: The Bronx. Since then, the magazine has grown to a subscriber base of over 10,000, and expanded its merchandise line to include DVDs, board games, books, and much, much more! Steve Samtur, Editor-in-Chief of “Back In THE BRONX”, now travels the country entertaining former-Bronxites from California to Florida to New York with his 90-minute Bronx Nostalgia PowerPoint Presentation, “The Bronx: The Way It Was”.

Tried to reply to a post asking about an island in the Bronx Zoo inhabited by monkeys. It was declined (don't know why). Anyway, it was called Gibbon Island in Lake Agassiz, one of two lakes next to each other along Pelham Pkwy. Google Maps shows one of these: Cope Lake. Don't know if Lake Agassiz is still there or was filled in. Check out:
Here's a long shot I was born 5/29/1951 Bronx, NY mother was Ruth Chronowitz fathers name was Frank Bruno. Mother supposedly came from Poland with 8 siblings mother was born 1919 and came to NY in the 30's. She married a man named Frank Bruno who may have been my father, then she married someone named Fontana yes I've done ancestry twice and two others. I just thought with 8 siblings someone might still be alive and even renember. So if anyone remember a Ruth Chronowitz or any of her family I would LOVE to hear from you.
65 years after moving still miss my Bronx.
Dennis Smith, Firefighter Who Wrote Best Sellers, Dies at 81 of Cmplications from Covid-19 “Report From Engine Co. 82” was the first of his 16 books. He also started Firehouse magazine and was the founding chairman of the New York City Fire Museum. Dennis Smith, a former teenage hellion and high school dropout who transformed himself into a famed New York City firefighter, a gritty best-selling author and a leading guardian of the safety of his colleagues and the public, died on Friday in Venice, Fla. He was 81. His death, in a hospital, was caused by complications of Covid-19, his son Sean Smith said. Mr. Smith was headed for jail as a juvenile delinquent when a sympathetic judge offered him an alternative: Join the military. He enlisted in the Air Force, returned to New York three years later and joined the Fire Department. While earning bachelor’s and master’s degrees at night, his literary career began when a magazine editor read an erudite letter by Mr. Smith published in The New York Times Book Review disputing the author Joyce Carol Oates’s characterization of William Butler Yeats as a universal poet rather than primarily an Irish one. The editor was stunned to discover the letter was signed by a Dennis E. Smith, who identified himself not as a literary critic or public intellectual but as a Bronx fireman. The editor’s intervention helped lead to a contract for the first of 16 books, “Report From Engine Co. 82” (1972), a chronicle of the city’s busiest firehouse. The book sold some three million copies, ennobled Mr. Smith as a champion of his profession and inspired countless men and women to become firefighters.

New Brooklyn-Queens ‘Interborough Express’ rail service proposed An underutilized 14-mile freight line would be converted into a new commuter “Interborough Express” service connecting neighborhoods in Brooklyn and Queens under a plan championed by Gov. Kathy Hochul on Wednesday. The new transit service would run from Bay Ridge in Brooklyn to Jackson Heights Heights in Queens. During her first state of the state address, Hochul ordered the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to conduct an environmental review and identify the best transit option for the corridor — heavy rail, light rail or bus rapid transit. “This historic project would improve transit service and job access for underserved communities in Brooklyn and Queens, serving a corridor that is currently home to 900,000 residents and 260,000 jobs, with expected growth of at least 41,000 people and 15,000 jobs in the next 25 years,” Hochul said. https://nypost.com/2022/01/05/kathy-hochul-pitches-new-brooklyn-queens-commuter-rail-service/
