Bronx News Roundup, Oct. 22

More on the charitable life and senseless death of Sadie Mitchell, the 92-year-old Williamsbridge woman who killed by a stray bullet on Tuesday evening. This morning, police took a man in for questioning.

The Gotham Gazette takes a long look at Mayor Bloomberg's contribution to city parks these past eight years. In the Bronx, it's a record that's decidedly mixed. On one hand you have record spending, on the other, the ongoing construction of a water filtration plant in Van Cortlandt Park, and the new Yankee Stadium, projects which gobbled up significant amounts of green space.

Yankees fans' hopes to preserve Gate 2 of the old Yankee Stadium (when the stadium is finally torn down) have hit a snag. The city says doing so would increase costs, and further delay the replacement parks promised to the community.

The Riverdale Press profiles Edward Tom, the successful principal of The Bronx Center for Science and Mathematics, a high school on Fulton Avenue just south of Crotona Park. Tom was featured on CBS back in July.

Last Sunday, a Melrose blogger witnessed - and photographed - what he says was an incident of police brutality on Third Avenue near East 158th Street.
