About

The Bronx Socialite was born in the spring of 2011 as my final project for the blogging course I took in my senior year at Baruch College. Having spent much of my undergraduate career writing about the Bronx, I decided to share my journey as I rediscovered my hometown. The primary focus of this blog is to help Bronxites discover the hidden gems in their own backyards – the mom and pop shops, all of our gorgeous outdoor spaces, and all of the positive, creative energy the flows through our streets. This blog is also a way for me to support businesses that are genuinely interested in our people and our borough. Gentrifiers need not apply.

 

I’ve lived in the Bronx for 26 of my 29 years on this Earth, growing up along the 6 line and currently residing in the northwest-ish area of the borough now. My nonfiction writing has appeared in the New York Daily News, Time Out New York, and The L Magazine, among others. I’m currently working on a novel, which is amazing and an endless labor of love.

 

Please join me as I continue on this journey way uptown by subscribing to the blog or following me on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

 

P.S. I would also like to give credit where credit is due. I thought of the name for this blog after visiting and writing a profile on the wonderful PeaceLove Cafe in the Melrose section of the Bronx, which sadly closed after damage it sustained during Hurricane Irene.
