THE BRONX - Bronx residents now have another place to relax and catch up on some popular local music.

The Boogie Down Booth, which will be stationed outside of Boricua College for an entire year, features solar-powered lights, music, community art and seating at an underused space in Morrisana.

It is the third installation of the Boogie Down Booth in the south Bronx.

While relaxing, Bronx residents can hear music from 16 different artists, including salsa, hip hop, jazz and the blues.
The Women Housing and Economic Development Corporation, which is one of the sponsors of the booth, says the public installation brings people together to celebrate the cultural diversity and rich music history of the borough.
