The Bronx is Booming - The Melrose Success Story

The Melrose neighborhood, in the Bronx New York, had a dramatic turnaround in the last two decades.

More than 5,000 new units of housing have been constructed since 2000, much of it affordable to low-income residents, and streets once vacant for blocks on end are now tree-lined strips of townhouses.

Melrose is now home to 25,000 residents, up from just 3,000 in 1980, among them Puerto Ricans, African Americans, Mexicans, West Africans, and Dominicans.

The Bronx Documentary Center occupies a 19th century landmarked Melrose mansion.
