Bronx News Roundup, April 15

An Iraq War veteran became a Bronx hero after saving a life at yesterday's Yankee Game. Toby Weiss, the wife of Bronx Rabbi Avi Weiss, was choking on her kosher London broil yesterday when John Stone spotted her from 15 rows back. Stone, an Army medic from Connecticut, rushed to Weiss' side and helped her expel the obstruction. For his heroics, Stone and his party were upgraded to front row seats in the stadium's Legends section.

Police are looking for two Bronx sisters who went missing from their neighborhood yesterday evening. Ella and Genesis Rodriguez, 15 and 16 respectively, were last seen around E. 174th St. yesterday.

Another missing Bronx girl, Mallorie Alaya, is being sought out by police after going missing on April 4 from her Lacombe Avenue home.

One current and one former Bronx cops are looking at serious jail time if convicted of slinging cocaine in the Bronx. Rafael Jiminez (auxiliary) and Alfredo Rivera (ex-cop) are being charged with conspiracy after allegedly being observed moving serious weight in a drug deal last month.

Somebody call the waaaaaambulance! Javier Vasquez is upset over his reception at last night's Yankees game, in which he pitched a stinky 9.82 ERA. Fans were not amused.

And, finally, real estate broker Robert Knackal gives his analysis of the Kingsbridge Armory development drama. He thinks the community and local politicians blew it by opposing and then killing the plan to turn the Armory into a shopping mall. Former Councilman Israel Ruiz, Jr. expressed a similar opinion in the Daily News on Tuesday [no link].


  1. The commentary on the Armory development isn't by Ruiz. It's by Robert Knakal, the chairman of a real estate firm who at the peak of the bubble stated he was bullish on investing in Bronx real estate. Based on other things he's written, the commentary is not surprising.
