On Saturday, October 25, 2014, Deputy Bronx Borough President Aurelia Greene celebrated her 80th birthday with a gala at the Bronx Museum of the Arts. During the event, in honor of her decades of service in his office, as a New York State Assembly Member and as a community activist, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. declared the day “Hon. Aurelia Greene Day in The Bronx.”




Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. signed up for a savings club membership and purchased several books following Thursday’s announcement that the Barnes & Noble in Co-op City would remain open.
