Bronx New Roundup, Wednesday, Oct. 1

Welcome to October. Here's some news and links to get you started this month.

The Economy
Times columnist Jim Dwyer takes a walk through the South Bronx to get a sense of how people in the Boogie Down are viewing the economic crisis and the bailout plan (which their Congressional Rep. Jose E. Serrano voted against) designed to stop the bleeding.

[Bailout Plan Update: The Senate is scheduled to vote on a new version of the plan today.]

In other citywide economic news, a story in the Times says the New York City real estate boom is dead.

And David Gonzalez writes on the Times City Room blog about a South Bronx soup kitchen struggling to keep up with increasing demand from its clients and no "bailout" from the government in sight.

An NYPD detective was accidentally shot in a very sensitive area by another cop at an east Bronx firing range.

A woman was stabbed multiple times at an East Gun Hill apartment building, allegedly during a domestic dispute. She's is reportedly in stable condition at a local hospital. Nothing has been written on this yet, but we'll try to find out more information.

The South Bronx High School football team is surprisingly dominant this year in the Cup Division, and is off to its first 4-0 start ever.

The Bronx Science women's golf team is not surprisingly dominating again this year, but faces a tough Stuyvesant team on Monday.

The Greenest Borough
Human Events, perhaps the most conservative media outlet in the entire country, wrote a long blog post about the Bronx's expansive green spaces and tourism opportunities. Who could have guessed?

The Village Voice reviews the Bronx Museum's new show: "Street Art, Street Life."
