Bronx News Roundup, September 2

Yesterday, an unnamed owner of the recent Mega Millions winning lottery ticket claimed their prize of $166.5 million. The winning ticket was purchased at Fordham Grocery and Convenience Store on West Fordham Road.

As the new Gateway Mall in the South Bronx begins to open big-box stores such as Target and Home Depot this summer and fall, local residents and politicians have expressed different views on the success of the development. While some store managers in the mall are happy about their new profits, other Bronx residents, such as Bronx BP Ruben Diaz, Jr. believe that the high price of parking will drive away customers.

A new, innovative theater performance presented by the Foundry Theater Company is set on an unpredictable stage--a tour bus traveling through the South Bronx. The performance, "The Provenance of Beauty," allows the audience to view past and present South Bronx landmarks while listening to actors tell their stories of the area via headphones. Of course, the performance requires a considerable amount of improvisation due to traffic and weather conditions, but this makes each showing of "Provenance" unique. Performances are scheduled to take place on the weekends through October 25. Click here for more information and tickets.

In the past week, there has been a series of three assaults against men in Tremont. In each instance, the attackers voiced anti-Mexican slurs. On Sunday, the victim of one of the assaults, a 53-year-old man, was stabbed.

After viewing a hit-and-run incident in Pelham Bay Park, a tow-truck operator chased the driver in the accident eight miles throughout the Bronx before he succeeded in holding the driver for the police.
