News Roundup for July 5

The Daily News has an update on the 2 kids who were hospitalized when the building they lived in collapsed Sunday. The 10-year old, Damian, is having his leg amputated today, and his 12-year-old brother Frank is recovering from a broken arm and leg, smashed ribs and punctured lungs. Developer Gerald Lieblich, who also owns the Loew's Paradise, is listed as the owner in city records, but he is claiming he has no interest in the company that owns 2260 Grand Concourse.

This summer, New Yorkers will have access to 69 schoolyards from 8 a.m. to dusk. It's part of a $111 million initiative to open almost 300 schoolyards to the public. In the West Bronx, PS 15, IS 391, PS 279, PS 306, PS 340 and PS 246 are open to the community.

A plan to paint all the subway stations is stalled, according to the Daily News.

And from Tuesday's News, Jeffrey Dinowitz was named Chair of the Assembly Committee on the Aging.
