Bronx News Roundup, Dec. 3, Part II

Here's a few more stories we've been meaning to post.

Two big stories and an op-ed about problems concerning the Yankee Stadium project:

-Due to the new stadium's construction schedule and the fact the team has yet to raze the old stadium, replacement baseball fields won't be available to little leaguers for at least a year or two, despite the team's promise that the community would have uninterrupted access to temporary replacement fields throughout the construction process.

-The Bloomberg administration pushed hard to get a free luxury suite at the new stadium, going so far as to offer the team 250 additional parking spaces in exchange for one.

-Geoffrey Croft of NYC Park Advocates and Bettina Damiani of Good Jobs NY argue that the stadium is much less beneficial than Yankee and city officials are making it out to be.


-The sister of the K-Mart employee who was trampled to death in Long Island is a Bronx resident. She filed a lawsuit against the company in Bronx Supreme Court today.

-The Streetsblog reviews the new transit and shopping hub in Melrose.

-A missing 3-year-old girl from the Bronx was found in Brooklyn after two days of searching.
