Bronx News Roundup for April 13

The Times' City Section (enjoy it while it lasts) examines the dwindling popularity of Gaelic Park in Kingsbridge (the Times calls it Riverdale) where Irish immigrants and their offspring play and watch hurling and Irish football.

Contractors who helped build the new Yankee Stadium and Citifield have some shady connections and are shunned by the city, according to the Times. Bronx park advocates are tired of reporters bringing these issues to light when it can no longer do any good.

Mike Lupica wonders who the New Yankee stadium is really for when average ticket prices are around $75 (figure it's a family of four, throw in the hot dogs, drinks and scorecards -- you get the idea.)

Didn't see any coverage of the event itself, but Gloria Estefan was supposed to have visited the Starbucks in Kingsbridge last Wednesday. Anyone see her?

A Morris Heights man who ran a drug operation that stretched from the Bronx to North Carolina began writing novels in prison. Now free and back home after 15 years, he's trying to find his way and pursue a writing a career.

A south Bronx public high school for film studies is scheduled to open in September.

Bronx reggae is being reborn in Wakefield.

Latin band leader and Bronxite Manny Oquendo has died.

Bronx environmental activists will get together monthly for "Green Drinks."

WNYC reports on the Bronx BP "race."

And here's a photo of Ashlee Simpon's baby, Bronx.
