South Bronx news

"Hunts Point's house of horrors" is the lead headline on the new issue of The Hunts Point Express, published last week. A Manida Street apartment complex has racked-up more that 2,000 violations, and tenants are living in squalor, as junkies, thieves and prostitutes invade and trash vacant apartments.
Less drastic, but more surprising, are conditions in an apartment building on E. 162 St. that led to a tenant protest against one of the city's biggest developers and managers of affordable housing.
The Express also tells readers what the next Bronx Borough President plans for their neighborhood and profiles the South Bronx Food Co-op. It's available free throughout Hunts Point and Longwood, as well as on-line at www.huntspointexpress.com.
And The Express now has a sibling. The Mott Haven Herald, staffed by students at the CUNY Graduate School of journalism and covering Mott Haven, Melrose and Port Morris, is on-line at www.motthavenherald.com and will publish its first newspaper soon.

  1. the house of horrors story is disgusting. if it were the only problem of its kind in the bronx we could say, well, it's an exception. but this is an ongoing epidemic in every bronx nabe and it will remian so until our leaders have the willpower and desire to take it on... and so far they have not demonstrated that they have what it takes.

    my solution? i've already posted it:
