KRVC is celebrating BLOCKS!  Our logo has featured 3 Blocks for the last 3 decades.  BLOCKS are a fun way to really symbolize what KRVC is all about and stay true to its history. Be sure to check out BLOCKS at all our upcoming KRVC events. It’s an exhibit where kids (and adults) can create and build. The BLOCKS exhibit demonstrates how, in many ways, we can come together and: Build a Better Community 1 Block at a Time!

The North West Bronx is a great place to live, work, shop, eat and play!  This section, which is still under construction, is designed to help you navigate our great community. Check back as we add more organizations, offices, religious institutions, schools, etc. to this section.
