Bronx News Roundup Oct. 28

Residents of Amalgamated Houses, near De Witt Clinton High School, have been complaining about a shortage of parking spaces, after 20th Century Fox and ABC took over their quiet street to film a new TV Series, "Life on Mars."

Two Bronx police officers, both women, have been charged with punching and a pistol-whipping a driver whose car door was blocking their way.

Seth Pinsky, head of the New York City Economic Development Corporation, writes in the Daily News that "the extensive benefits of the [Yankee] stadium project to the people of the Bronx and to the city have been overlooked or not reported at all."

Borough President Adolfo Carrion wants to install more bike racks on Bronx streets, in an effort to make the borough more bicycle-friendly.

In his weekly column, the Daily News' Bob Kappstatter looks back at Councilman Jimmy Vacca's last minute decision to vote in favor of extending term limits. Other tidbits: Carrion will probably abandon his run for comptroller and run for a third term as BP; Espada and Rev. Diaz have made up; and the latest on the "train wreck" that is the feuding Bronx Democratic Party. More here.

Bronx Community College's women's volleyball team have won their first ever conference title.

Zealous, a store in Riverdale, sells custom-made masks to those who take Halloween seriously (and have money to spare).

Gerard Damiano, the Bronx-porn (sorry, born) director of "Deep Throat," has died. He was 80-years-old.
