Dr. Annecy Baez was born in the Dominican Republic, but grew up in a mostly Jewish neighborhood in the Bronx during the 1970s.

But she said she couldn't find stories that she could connect to.

Morning Brief: July 15

Bronxites (and anybody who wants, really), will be treated to some beautiful music from the New York Philharmonic in Van Cortlandt Park tonight—but only if the weather holds up.  A planned show for Central Park last night was rained out, so classical music fans will be praying for a dry evening.  If it happens, it’ll be 8-9:30.  Enter from Broadway, near 251st as the site is north of the ball fields.  Entrance is free.

He takes the East River Ferry service every day from Williamsburg - Brooklyn to Manhattan. He said the ferry gives him a chance to kick-back before and after work
