Opening at the Half King in New York: Antonio Bolfo - IMPACT: Life on the Housing Beat
'We were as green as could be, and like other Impact officers I hit the ground running with little to no knowledge of how to operate on the street. Yet we were expected to … solve family disputes, console the parents of murdered children, and entertain the neighborhood drunk.’
- Antonio Bolfo
New York, NY — On July 24th, Antonio Bolfo’s photo exhibit of rookie police officers charged with patrolling a South Bronx housing project will open at The Half King. Bolfo undertook this photo project as an NYPD insider—for two years he worked in a police program called Operation Impact. With only six months of academic training, he and his confederates had to conduct manhunts, defend the helpless, and supply emotional succor to victims of violence.
On opening night, Antonio and Ed Conlon, former NYPD detective and author of Blue Blood, will moderate a slideshow and discussion of Antonio’s work.
