For decades the Bronx has been ignored in the larger conversation of a changing New York City. But as big developers like Chetrit Group and Greystone turn their eyes north, and Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. announces his lofty desires for creating a Brooklyn Bridge Park-style public space along the Harlem River, it seems like momentum is starting to build around the fledgling borough, especially in its southern portion.

Also in the borough, landmarked buildings like the Bronx Borough Courthouse and more northernly Kingsbridge Armory are being appropriated for cultural events space. Here's a look at a few of the big things that will spearhead more change in the south Bronx.
