I have enjoyed Msgr. Thomas Shelley's book, and I have learned much from it. My enthusiasm for The Bronx comes from education at St John's, Kingsbridge, and dad bringing me on explorations of the Bronx streetcar routes of the Third Avenue Railway System that existed about 1946. These car lines passed many a Bronx church, and Dad tipped his hat. Some trolleys even carried the destination "Protectory" on their lengthy roller signs, the turnback being on Tremont Avenue in front of where the Pro had stood.

See pages 587 and 595 for a description of the activist community organization, "South Bronx Churches." This index uses older neighborhood names as Mott Haven and Melrose. The term "South Bronx" is too often used for neighborhoods that are geographically North, Central, East, or West Bronx.
