SoBroSoBRO is committed to providing affordable housing and other services to the South Bronx.

By Jim Harris

In the 1970s, the South Bronx was nationally known for all the wrong reasons. The New York City neighborhood, which had previously been a place for working-class families, had deteriorated into poverty and crime.

Hundreds of thousands of residents fled the area, and those remaining witnessed the destruction and abandonment of many of the area’s homes and businesses.

During that time, a group of local business executives and community leaders took on the urgent task of trying to reverse the neighborhood’s decline. The South Bronx Overall Economic Development Corporation, known as SoBRO, formed in 1972, initially focused on preventing further job and business losses by supporting business and industrial development efforts.
