THE BRONX - A new series of paintings depicting scenes from The Bronx in the 1950s and 1960s are on display through next month at Lehman College.

The 27 paintings being showcased at the college were painted by Bronx native William Folchi. His son, Bill, says he discovered nearly 100 paintings while cleaning out his family's basement. Folchi says the paintings helped him appreciate the continuity and changes that The Bronx has seen.

The gallery of paintings is free and open to the public at the Leonard Lief Library at Lehman College through Jan. 9.
