About

college-ave-pressBanana Kelly Community Improvement Association, Inc. is only possible because  residents, who were part of one of the most dramatic urban debacles of American history, were unrelenting in their fight to save their neighborhood – this despite the general consensus from outside the community that there was no future for the South Bronx, at least not for those who lived there.  Given this history, where local residents built this organization from nothing, we are compelled to respect and promote local resident capacity in our ongoing work.
