Bronx News Roundup April 16

State Senator Jeff Klein has sponsored a bill that could help fight the knock-on effects of foreclosure.

A satellite image of the two Yankee Stadiums reveals their similarities.

The Hunts Point and Woodstock branches of the New York Public Library have been landmarked.

State Senators Pedro Espada and Ruben Diaz Sr still aren't budging. Both continue to oppose efforts to toll the Harlem and East Rivers, despite a compromise plan introduced by supporters that would have given rebates to certain drivers (local businesses and those travelling to medical appointments.) Diaz told The Times he's "opposed to any toll." The tolls are seen as an alternative to massive MTA fair hikes and service cuts.

Espada may be a powerful man in Albany, but his name doesn't seem to register with many of his Bronx constituents.

Tenant rights advocates rallied outside the New York Community Bank at 3681 Tremont Ave. yesterday, to bring attention to banks that give inflated loans to private equity groups.

An army reservist from the Bronx has been charged with using a government purchasing program to buy $100,000 of electronics and other supplies which he later sold on eBay.

This summer, Martha Stewart will redesign a herb garden at the New York Botanical Garden.
