Event description

Description

The movie Fort Apache, The Bronx, although highly praised, was also recognized for its negative portrayal of The Bronx during the early 1980s. For many years Bronx residents fought off derogative stereotypes because of the lingering effects the movie and other media outlets had created over the years. Today, the neighborhood in which the real Fort Apache (41st Precinct) sits underwent a major transformation, with the actual building landmarked and restored for a special crimes unit of the New York City Police Department. Meet BCHS Program Director Angel Hernandez on the northeast corner of Simpson Street and Westchester Avenue to start the tour. Take the #2 or #5 train to Simpson Street. Take Bronx buses #4, #4A, #5, or #19.
