Bronx News Roundup for Sept. 21

Cops shot and injured an armed man in Williamsbrige early Friday morning. The man, a passenger in a stolen car, was wielding a kitchen knife, cops said.

New York City's unemployment rate was 5.7 percent in August, unchanged from July, but up 1 percent from August 2006. The Bronx has the highest rate out of all the boroughs - 7.8 percent in August, down from 8.1 percent in July.

The Bronx Borough Board still hasn't voted on the new Yankee Stadium parking subsidy deal, according to StreetsBlog. Here's a Norwood News editorial about the parking garages.

Yesterday's Sun looked at how the Mets and the Yankees are getting on with their new ballparks. Construction crews, say the paper, are working at breakneck speed to get ahead before winter comes.

Bernie Williams, the former Yankees outfielder and now a guitarist in a jazz band, performs tomorrow night at Utopia's Paradise Theater, on the Grand Concourse. The evening also features a play starring Williams' former teammates, Jim Leyritz and Darryl Strawberry. Proceeds will go towards the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club of America. Kips Bay, by the way, are looking at opening a new community center in University Heights, in the long-vacant Hebrew Institute.
