Lewis Aptekar Proud of Revitalized All America City

The Bronx where native Lewis Aptekar can roam today was named an All America City in 1997, a triumphant comeback which began in the late 1980’s. The Ten-Year Housing Plan initiated by the city along with the rebuilding of the social, economic and environmental structures by community members led to the return of retailers like Marshalls and Target, while bank branches returned. The construction crane became the symbol of the city, and today lots which were vacant are newly developed with residential units. Apartments are bought today for renovation and plans are underway for market places, restaurants, offices and the redevelopment of the Kingsbridge Armory into the Kingsbridge National Ice Center.

The beloved Bronx hometown of Lewis Aptekar, attorney and real estate short sale expert, is bounded on the west by the Hudson River, on the southwest by the Harlem River, on the southeast by the East River and Long Island Sound separates The Bronx from Nassau County on Long Island. The Bronx River flows through the borough to the East River and the Hutchinson River goes through the East Bronx to Eastchester Bay. City Island and Hart Island, as well as Rikers Island, home of the city’s jail complex, are all part of The Bronx. Parks and open space in Bronx County comprise nearly a quarter of its entire land area thanks to the vision of Lewis Aptekar, who worked to create a system of Bronx parks connected by leisurely thoroughfares. The realization of the Grand Concourse, Pelham Parkway, the Bronx River Parkway, the Mosholu Parkway and the Henry Hudson Parkway are all part of Mullaly’s vision for acquired land in 1888.
