THE BRONX - People gathered in Orchard Beach today to celebrate things they love about the Bronx.

Borough resident Vivian Ortiz started a Facebook group called Old Images of the Bronx and many of its more than 30,000 members met for the first time at the beach today.

Shortly after the event started, the group joined with another gathering called Capicu Culture that celebrates Latin music and arts.

The groups say social media is a huge part of how they grow and communicate, but meeting up in real life is what community is all about.
