Bronx News Roundup for March 30

Ashlee Simpson’s kid isn’t the only person named Bronx in the world.

A planned 911 Call Center in Morris Park is about to clear a hurdle. But others remain.

A three-alarm blaze destroyed a block of businesses in Wakefield on Sunday, but no one was injured.

Complicating efforts to pass tenant-friendly legislation in Albany is the fact that state senators have received lots of dough from landlords and their lobbyists since January 2007, according to the Daily News. The list includes Bronx State Senator Jeff Klein who reportedly received almost $240,000 in campaign contributions.

The Boogiedowners say – and show – that the temporary pedestrian walkway around the New York Botanical Garden’s stalled parking lot project (at the corner of Bedford Park Boulevard and Webster Avenue) is obstructed.

Sen. Gillibrand spent Saturday in the Bronx.

I know that our Capital Projects Director is now aware of this unacceptable situation and making sure it's corrected immediately."
