Bronx News Roundup, March 12

So much for spring's early and loving embrace. Forecast is for rain and wind for the weekend, folks. Since you'll probably be inside anyways, we suggest you fire up some popcorn and watch all those movies you've been meaning to get to. Personally? I'll be re-watching Rumble in the Bronx. You know you loved it.

In Bronx news:

The BBC has a story about Haitians granted temporary protected status in the Bronx. The article profiles one woman, Christanya Semplice, who has been living in the Bronx for 22 years without legal documentation. Temporary protected status allows people with similar circumstances to Semplice to work and study legally in the U.S for 18 months.

A lawyer representing the three Bronx buddies who face up to a year in prison for throwing a snowball at an off-duty cop is filing a false arrest suit against the city.

Bronx Bodegas selling illegal alcoholic concoctions to underage kids are getting hammered by the city and state. Two employees of Rodriguez Deli were arrested for selling vodka and fruit cocktails to an underage, undercover NYPD officer. The deli has since lost it's beer license.

Mexican artist Gabriel Orozco visited students at P.S 47 in the Bronx.

A Bronx woman has pleaded guilty to a hit-and-run that occurred last month in Brooklyn that left a mayoral aide brain dead.

A School Safety officer has been charged with the death of one person after drunkenly ramming her vehicle into a tree last night.

A Bronx woman was struck and killed by the 6 train last night, after she descended onto the tracks to retrieve a dropped bag.

Richard Izquierdo Arroyo, former chairman of the South Bronx Charter School and nephew to councilwoman Carmen Arroyo, is being charged with failing to prevent the harassment of a student by a teacher.

A little cycling guide. Here's hoping the weather clears up soon.

  1. Mr. Gibbons, I prefer to call the movie by the name of the city in which it was filmed- Rumble in Vancouver. If you are looking for a better cinematic Bronx experience, I hear the Wanderers has some great shots of the Bronx from the late 70s and MST3K loves the Italian flick Fuga dal Bronx.
