IPED students took part in the first annual Urban Development Career Trip on Friday, September 18th. Students were given a tour of the area by a representative from the Fordham Road Business Improvement District (BID)
Fordham Road is the largest shopping district in the Bronx, and the 3rd largest in New York City. The district is in a diverse, bustling community, and has a great mix of independent shops and regional and national chain stores.
The trip also included speakers from the local community, lunch and an alumni panel at the beautiful Bronx Library Center.
