Bronx Week 2015 kicks off with tribute to centenarians

Bronx Week 2015 is underway, and centenarians from the borough were honored in Throgs Neck Thursday as part of the fun.



Residents who turned or will turn 100 this year were celebrated at Villa Barone Manor. Charlotte Lockette, who is 107, is just one of the many centenarians who took part in the festivities. She was joined by Joseph Binder, who is 105.



Those in attendance say one of the secrets to a long life is having a good sense of humor.



Bronx Week runs through May 17.
