photo of “The Hub” just off 3rd Avenue in the South Bronx

The new Roberto Clemente Plaza project in “The Hub” just off 3rd Avenue in the South Bronx has received a photogenic facelift, thanks to Hostos Development Specialist Romain Suinat. Suinat, an avid photographer who works for the Office of Institutional Advancement, was one of the winners of the South Bronx Overall Economic Development Corporation’s (SoBRO) photo contest, which asked photographers of all levels to submit photos and stories that captured the essence of the neighborhoods of the South Bronx. 

The photos are on display now as part of an exhibit at the site of the Plaza, transforming the construction site fence into a temporary photo gallery. The photos will be showcased until November 2016. The winners were announced at the Bronx Museum of the Arts on June 9, and received a cash prize.

Suinat, who was born in Reims, France and moved to the United States in 2010, said he wanted to capture random moments he felt represented the beauty of the borough.
