Fyrezone Ent Presents: Heart of the Bronx
Community School District 12 is located in the center of the Bronx with a total of 33 schools in the district. Because of its location, and how it borders nearly every other school district in the Bronx, CSD 12 has deemed itself "The Heart of the Bronx." In collaboration with FYREZONE, I.S. 190, and M.S. 318, we developed the Heart of the Bronx song. An anthem that every Bronxnite can relate to. No matter the age, race, or creed, this song is a represation for all people. We hope that this song can unite people and show the rest of the world the beauty the Bronx has to offer.
