Green Grub in Hunts Point

On Thursday, a seafood business in Hunts Point will unveil the city's "first all electric delivery vehicle," according to a press release from the Bronx Borough President's Office.

What: A zero-emissions delivery truck
Where: Down East Seafood at 311 Manida St.
When: Oct. 2, at 11 a.m.
Who: Louis Torres, from BCC's Center For Sustainable Energy;
Congressman Jose E. Serrano; Frank Randazzo, from the Bronx Overall Economic Development Corp.; representatives of N.Y.S.E.R.D.A, Smith Electric and D.O.T.

A small step, perhaps, but it's welcome news in a neighborhood with more than its fair share of environmental concerns.

Interestingly, the Bronx seems to get a lot of "firsts" when it comes to green innovation. Our borough boasts the city's first green library, its first green affordable homes, and what will be one of the first green schools. The Bronx is also the borough with the greenest roofs.
