Bronx News Roundup, April 1

Spring is back! Enjoy the day and some Bronx news:

Tenants of 2710 Bainbridge Ave. plan to file a lawsuit against  landlord Frank Palazzolo in housing court tomorrow in effort to get the building into better hands. Palazzolo was rated as one of the "10 Worst Landlords" by the Village Voice.  (If the name sounds familiar to readers of the Norwood News, it's because of our 2002 coverage here, here and here. Also we have a reporter at a rally in front of the building right now.)

The city's decision to use federal stimulus money to build a parking garage at St. Barnabas Hospital may remove more than the problem of an overcrowded parking lot. A doctor's union has filed a lawsuit against the city claiming that the project would do the opposite of what the stimulus money is meant to do and will eliminate permanent jobs instead of creating them. The Tremont Tribune published a story about the parking garage in February.

Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. cheers on Bronx residents to complete census forms so that the Boogie-Down can be tops in Census form returns.

The Jewish Association of Services for the Aging received $10,000 in federal funding from Rep. Joseph Crowley toward the Grandparents Connection Program in Co-Op City.

Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. and other local Community Board officials are holding a rally on Monday to protest Mayor Bloomberg's proposed 2011 budget cuts that they say will greatly affect community boards and the services they provide.

Political parties are preparing for a showdown in the selection of the next executive director of the city's Board of Elections.

Community leaders , firefighters and City Island residents rallied again yesterday against the closing of Ladder 53 and other firehouses throughout the city. According to Bloomberg's proposed budget cuts for the 2011 fiscal year, nearly 20 firehouses would be shut down.

A look into why "Morrisania Air Rights" housing project on Park Avenue, was given such an unusual name.
