Business is booming in Port Morris, one of the city's few remaining industrial enclaves.

The Fordham Rams take on the Lady Jaspers (Manhattan College) tonight in women's basketball. You can listen to it live on WFUV-FM 90.7. The Rams will be trying to avoid their 36th consecutive defeat.

Assemblymen Jose Rivera and Carl Heastie may be bitter rivals (both claim to lead the Bronx Democratic Party), but their relationship remains cordial.

A travel blog has discovered Arthur Avenue.

Pedro Espada, not yet a state senator, is bidding to be the next Senate Majority Leader, according to El Diario/La Prensa. (You can't fault him for ambition.)

At a ceremony today, the Triborough Bridge will be officially renamed the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge.

Bronx-born Eric H. Holder, currently a senior legal adviser to Barack Obama, is being tapped as the next US attorney general. He would the first African-American to hold the position.
