Bronx Bodegas for Beginners—the Long and Short of It

Bodega Down Bronx from the Center for Urban Pedagogy on Vimeo.

The Center for Urban Pedagogy produced this short film about bodegas and the foods that they sell in the Bronx. The borough has a much higher rate of obesity than the rest of New York, something many people blame on poor available food choices. Or the problem could be that lower-priced bodegas economically empower children, whose food choices can be suspect under the best circumstances. The documentary is a good primer on the bodega industry.
