Bracing for Gentrification in the South Bronx

Since its inception, the group has photographed the South Bronx as part of a continuing chronicle on gentrification. This year, its major project looks at the impending transformation of a major South Bronx corridor, Jerome Avenue. The street, much of it under the shadows of the elevated 4 train, is the end of old New York, a gritty two-mile stretch of low buildings where thousands of immigrants work in small stores, factories and car repair shops.
