A Grand Book about Bronx's Grandest Boulevard
Fordham University Press has taken honors with its Intersections: The Grand Concourse at 100, edited by Sergio Bessa (curator of The Bronx Museum of the Arts) with a foreward by Daniel Libeskind (FUP 2009). The book received The Bookbinder's Guild of New York award in the Scholarly and Professional Category, and was displayed at the 24th Annual New York Book Show, held on March 9.
The book documents the heyday of Bronx’s most famous boulevard, when tree-lined sidewalks and grand art deco apartment buildings with doormen made it one of the borough’s most fashionable thoroughfares.
