Bronx News Roundup, Feb. 12

Lots to get to today. Here's some Bronx stories to get your day started.  

NY Times reporter Sam Dolnick takes a walk around the Kingsbridge section of the Bronx and mulls the Armory, stops at the Tibbet Diner, Van Cortlandt Museum, the Bronx Ale House (site of the upcoming BxNN bash on Feb. 25. RSVP now!) and other local spots. Nice little multimedia slide show comes with the story. 

Times Columnist Clyde Haberman goes off on "Bagel Larry" Seabrook and the scandal-plagued state of the City Council, which coincidentally voted to extend their term limits last fall. (I think we need to put this to a vote: should it be "Bagel Larry" or "Cash and Carry Larry"?) More on Bagel-nomics here.

Speaking of Bagel Larry (we'll go with this one for brevity purposes), Seabrook didn't show up to work yesterday, leaving his colleague, Maria del Carmen Arroyo, who remains under a cloud of suspicion, to fend off reporters' questions.In the same story,  The Daily News also says that Assembly members Peter Rivera and Carmen Arroyo (Maria's mom) are also under being investigated.

More on the Bronx's new golf course in Ferry Point.

Bronx Rep Eliot Engel calls Washington, DC's reaction to the recent snow storm "wimpy."

Bronx hip-hop legend Afrika Bambaataa is working with a social networking site that promotes dialogue between people who speak different languages.  

The Department of Homeless Services is changing its policies after a 17-year-old high school student was stuck in a Bronx intake center and missed her Regents graduation exam.

And finally, pessimistic Yankee blogophiles are already conjuring up ways in which the World Series Champion Bronx Bombers' upcoming season could fall apart. (Hint: it may something to with Kate Hudson and/or Cameron Diaz.)

Happy Valentine's Weekend!


  1. You have to laugh at Engel using the word "wimp" -- especially when the image of him parked out on the aisle of the House of Representatives for the State of the Union is so fresh in our minds. His yearly camp-out to get his mug on national TV shaking the President's hand doesn't exactly present the image of toughness.

  2. What's "more" on the golf course?

    Looks like the same article you already linked to...

  3. Gee when you link to the DN Seabrook a no show. You see how hard our Councilman from the 14th District works... He is sleeping. LOL Way to hard at work. :)

  4. Just what we need.

    A golf course to attract more geese around the airport!

  5. Great photo of our new Councilman in the 14th. This one is a sleeper. What a joke.

  6. Cabrera was not sleeping. I was there during the stated meeting. It is obvious the picture was taken when he had his eyes closed. But I am not surprised that the Cabrera haters continue with their ignorant remarks.
