Check out the most recent Highbridge Horizon

While the next issue of the Highbridge Horizon is right around the corner, check out our most recent issue here. We've got stories about the city's comprehensive lawsuit against landlord Hamid Kahn, the owner of a building on University Avenue that racked up more than 2000 open violations from the city; the efforts of a Woodycrest Avenue resident to put her past history of drug use behind her, rebuild her life and regain custody of her granddaughter; and an update on the construction of replacement parks and recreational facilities as part of the new Yankee Stadium project.

You will also find three hard-hitting opinion pieces: Tawana Prunty's column about the recent fatal police shooting of Fermin Arzu, an unarmed Honduran immigrant ; Maria Simmons' piece expressing frustration with what she sees as poor communication and lack of planning on the part of the local community board in relation to the recent closing of the Highbridge library; and Vanessa Truell's call for the city to pursue construction of a new middle school in Highbridge with the same vigor that it pushed for a new baseball stadium and other development ventures.
