Beloved Bronx historian remembered

Loved ones came together Tuesday to celebrate the life of a well-known Bronx historian. 



Morgan Powell was found dead last month in the waters off Brooklyn, according to the New York Times. 



Friends say Powell loved everything about the Bronx, from its rivers and parks, to its schools and immigration patterns. 



The city's medical examiner is investigating the cause of death.
