In October BLOX NYC kick-started the Rocking The Bridge initiative which brought together business owners, community leaders, and residents for a massive overdue cleanup of the Third Ave Bridge in The Bronx. The event was followed by a block party to celebrate everyone’s efforts. Blox is at it again, this time they are getting into the holiday spirit.

Starting in December the popular Bronx neighborhood of Mott Haven will be the site of the Regalos NYC Holiday Market. The first ever festive shopping experience will give shoppers the opportunity to purchase all sorts of goods from over two dozen vendors. Retail from local and global brands, foods, and drinks from local breweries and distilleries will be available for purchase. Still, about a month away more details will come out soon.

This festive celebration of the community is all about showing off how far the South Bronx has come. It is essential to recognize the people and businesses that continue to shed the negative stigma of the South Bronx. Mott Haven is the starting point of this movement.
