News Roundup for July 23

A report released Friday by watchdog group Good Jobs New York reveals that taxpayers will be subsidizing the new Yankee Stadium by $100 million more than originally reported. WNYC looks at the influence of former and current elected officials on the controversial project's approval, including Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, Assemblyman and Democratic County Chair Roberto Ramirez, and Bronx political operative Stanley Schlein. Read the full report here.

Officials declared that the Bronx is making a comeback at the groundbreaking for the Metro North station at Yankee Stadium, the Post reports.

And today's Post talks about the Bronx's construction boom, with an estimated $965 million invested in new developments this year.

The Bronx Times explains the dispute between First Tee of Metropolitan New York and the Parks Department. First Tee, which runs the Mosholu Golf Course, was reimbursed last year for revenue it expected to lose due to the filtration plant construction on the site. Now the city says First Tee underreported its revenue.

The Daily News features two stories about schools in the Evander Childs building on East Gunhill Road. Students from the High School of Computers and Technology are pairing up with Bronxwood Nursing Home to set up a computer lab for the seniors, and students from the Bronx Lab School area headed to China and will blog about their experiences there.
