The Bronx and the All-Star Game

It's All-Star Game Day today and we expect to periodically post throughout the day about various ways the Bronx is getting the cold shoulder from Major League Baseball and the Yankees.

And, speaking of the All-Star Game, here's a notice about a press conference later today where the Urban Justice Center and the Northwest Bronx Community and Clergy Coalition will release a report about how the so-called Bronx Boom is leaving its residents behind.

As MLB All-Star Game comes to town, Report Finds Bronx is Still Burning from Staggering Unemployment, Dead-End Jobs

Before the first pitch gets thrown at the MLB All-Star Game, the Northwest Bronx Community & Clergy Coalition (NWBCCC) and the Urban Justice Center will be joined by dozens of Bronx residents to release Boom for Whom? How the Resurgence of the Bronx is Leaving Residents Behind, a new report based on hundreds of community surveys and US Census statistics which finds that Bronx residents continue to face staggering unemployment and low-paying jobs, in stark contrast to the recent commercial development that many claim is revitalizing the borough.
