Welcome2Melrose Celebrates One Year Blogging!
On September 10th, 2009, Welcome2Melrose was born and began bringing you all the best which Melrose has to offer. For so many years mainstream media as well as the rest of the world didn't talk about the great things the South Bronx in general has to offer so I had to take matters into my own hands.
This past year has been a wonderful journey which has brought me closer to you, the readers, Melrose residents and all Bronxites as well. Welcome2Melrose has received wonderful attention from traditional media such as The New York Times, News12 The Bronx, New York Magazine and even the Bronx' very own talk show, BronxTalk, hosted by Gary Axelbank. When Coqui Mexicano, our beloved local restaurant and cultural institution was in trouble, Welcome2Melrose broke the story and both the New York Times and the New York Daily News followed suit after reading about it here in Welcome2Melrose.
Going forward into the next year, look forward to many exciting changes and additions to Welcome2Melrose as we continue to expand in order to better serve our community and viewers alike. As always, we are open to your suggestions so do not hesitate in shooting us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling us directly at 347-92-MELRO.
Thank you all once again for your support in this endeavor. It has been a great year and here's to many more to come!
