Bronx News Roundup Sept. 15

Police say a woman was murdered inside a Gun Hill Road apartment on Saturday by a jealous ex-boyfriend. Julio Flores allegedly stabbed Jaritza Calderone, 28, to death before chopping up her body and burying it in the basement of a New Jersey home.

The beginning of the school year has been fraught with difficulties for many Bronx schools, according to the Daily News.

Bronx State Senator Jeffrey Klein has released his annual "dirty dozen" list of the city's filthiest restaurants. Based on inspection scores published by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, the list includes two Bronx eateries: Guacamole'X on East 180th Street, and Popcorn Hof and Bar on East 204th Street. All the latest scores are available on the department's Web site. Klein wants the city's 20,000 restaurants to publicly display this information so that customers can make a more informed decision on where to eat. One of the cleanest restaurants, incidentally, is the Blimpie at 85 E. Gunhill Road.

  1. Instead of picking on small businesses, Klein should do a filthiest air list for neighborhoods where residents are most at risk from breathing.

    Oh wait ... Klein likes dirty air, or else he would have supported congestion pricing.
