Hernandez, right hand man to Bronx Historian Lloyd Ulton, loves
speaking about his knowledge of our beautiful borough:

“To have the opportunity to share the historic heritage of our great
borough, my home The Bronx, to the world is a chance of a life time,”
said Hernandez, a graduate of Lehman College and Norwood resident.

The event will be held at 1 p.m. at The Bronx Archives
Building located at 3313 Bainbridge Avenue, The Bronx, New York 10467.
