As to the Bronx changing, maybe the stores and buildings, but perhaps not the political causes. Regardless of one's opinion of AOC, there is a history of political passions emitting from her 14th District--vis. her distant predecessor, Polish-born Congressman Morris Michael Edelstein, a Democrat who served from February 1940- June 1941, who died in office, in the House "cloak room", after delivering a speech on the House floor opposing pro-Nazi Mississippi Congressman John Rankin's blatant racism and anti-Semitism.
