Bronx News Roundup, March 24

Four-year-old Joshua Delarosa was critically injured after a traffic pole landed on his head. A cab driver allegedly swerved to miss a city bus and crashed into the poll, which then struck Joshua and his mother.

The police officer who was shot in the belly yesterday afternoon is in a stable condition. The officer was shot two times; a third bullet was blocked by his Kevlar vest. The shooter took his own life.

Hoodlums smashed 200 light bulbs in a Castle Hill housing development, creating dark and dangerous hallways for residents of the building.

The Haven Academy Charter school will be housed in a new green LEED-certified building.

A small peek at what goes on in the lot behind Tuff City, a tattoo parlor on East Fordham Road.

A Bronx man accused of murder was caught by U.S Marshals in Pennsylvania.

The Daily News has a roundup of savings that can be found in stores and restaurants on East Tremont Avenue.

Some New York Democrats want to legalize medical marijuana in the state to help plug up the $9 billion budget gap. Medical marijuana activists believable legalizing the crop will generate millions of dollars for the state. As of now, marijuana is still a criminalized substance in New York.

Some insight into State Senator Pedro Espada's plan to charge motorists $2 each way to cross East River bridges. (Subscription needed.)  Last year, Espada criticized a similar proposal.


  1. Espada's announcement about proposing tolling the free buildings to support transit sounded like he finally wanted to do the right thing. But it's just another sham. Like the housing bill.

    First off, it's going nowhere, since he excluded the Harlem River Bridges. He's going to get no support when he proposes fees only for somebody else's district!

    Then there's the matter of his misleading statements. Without tolling the Harlem River Bridges, how would his proposal support his claims it will improve air quality in the Bronx?

    As usual, more misleading talk. Pedro Espada, fighting for himself, at the expense of the Bronx!
