New mural aims to combat gentrification of the Bronx

A new mural in Mount Hope is drawing attention to gentrification in the Bronx.



Alberto Serrano painted the mural of a comic strip.



He told the New York Times, after he read about opposition to a temporary art exhibit in the old Bronx Courthouse and a party thrown by a real estate developer, he needed to do something.



Serrano, who's also know as the King-Bee, says he hopes the wall will raise awareness about what's going on in the borough.
