Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. will kick off the 10-day Bronx Week celebration Thursday.

Some of the best shops and restaurants in the Bronx have already set up shop in the Bronx County Building.

"We really like Bronx Week because it is like an exhibition of all the great culture that happens in the Bronx. So much good food, good drinks, really, really good vibes in general," says Andrew Steigbigel, of Bronx Brewery.

Some of the famous faces inducted into the Bronx Walk of Fame Class of 2017 were revealed Monday. The honorees include Latin superstar Prince Royce, hip-hop DJ Funkmaster Flex, actress Selenis Leyva and Dr. Manny Villafana.
