Bronx News Round for Sept. 3

Gotham Gazette looks at the Council race in the 16th District, where Yankee Stadium is a significant backdrop.

The Bronx Chamber of Commerce rejected Sen. Pedro Espada’s offer of nearly $2 million in member item money, which would have quadrupled the group’s budget. “We’re not in the senior citizen business,” Chamber e.d. Lenny Caro told the Post. (We’ve been hearing that Espada is now trying to spread senior program dough around his district, but officials of some local groups say what they really need is money for youth programs. (Another argument for granting teens under 18 the vote?)

Even though the Kingsbridge Knights were the only New York State youth baseball team to compete in the Cal Ripken World Series in Winchester, MA, they have been overlooked by city leaders – a stark contrast to the reception given the South Shore All-Stars in Staten Island.

An arrest was made in the bias attacks James Fergusson reported on yesterday.

An east Bronx street is sinking.
