My name is Gregory Hernandez. I’m a Bronx native, resident, photographer, and filmmaker.
I grew up on Jerome Avenue, blocks away from Yankee Stadium. I’m lucky to have both of my parents, who provided a stable foundation for me.
Poverty means wasted lives. Being deprived of the essentials for living a consistent life creates adverse conditions for people, who could have grown to their full potential, prospered, and contributed to society.
My team and I are producing a documentary highlighting this literary crisis facing The Bronx.
