Year in Pictures


It has been a year of things that were lost and things that were found, of righteous indignation and petty feuds, of new starts and milestones.

This year has seen the ascension of state Sen. Alessandra Biaggi from insurgent candidate in 2018 to the halls of the state senate in January. Students at Ethical Culture Fieldston School rose up in protest to demand change after a video riddled with racial epithets went viral. A Bronx-born U.S. Supreme Court Justice returned home to share words of wisdom with new college graduates.

These are but a few inflection points in a year with its fair share of surprises. Here is a look back at some of the moments defined 2019 in the northwest Bronx.
