They include Iran Barkley, a world champion boxer who grew up in the Patterson Houses, Carolyn Porco, a planetary scientist who studies the outer solar system, and singer-songwriter Regina Spektor, who has five performances on Broadway next month.
Past Bronx Walk of Fame inductees include actor Chazz Palminteri, music producer Swizz Beatz and former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell.
The Bronx Parade was also held Sunday to celebrate local Bronx organizations and community members.
The march was led by elected officials and Bronx ROTC programs. Marching bands and performers were also featured at the event.
