Bronx News Roundup, April 2

It looks like the Bronx is in for a weekend of beautiful weather. I contemplated whipping out the shorts today, but decided to spare innocents the sight of my alabaster legs. Anyways, here's some Bronx links to start your weekend off right:

Free WiFi? Affordable telephone service? Home Networking Services, a broadband network being set up by the South Bronx Overall Economic Development Corporation (BOEDC) has been working with Urban Telephone and Video to set up affordable broadband access for public housing projects. The service also provides tenants with security cameras that stream video to home computers, making their job safer and easier.

The NY Times has an article about traffic watching on the Cross Bronx Expressway. The new spectator sport views the Cross Bronx Expressway, which is the worst bottleneck in the country, as a source of of entertainment and therapy. Guess it depends on where you're sitting.

The Bronx Zoo will unveil a baby mandrill tomorrow. The Daily News has a first look at the "funky monkey."

Riccardo Tedesco, who had a close call after his car drove headlong into flood waters on the Bronx River Parkway last week, talks about his experience.

A new book chronicles the history of the Boogie Down.

A Bronx man has been arrested after being accused of selling fake Michael Buble tickets. Rodney Watts tried to sell the four fraudulent tickets on craigslist.org for $700. The con man was arrested by undercover investigators who, apparently, are also huge Michael Buble fans.

Javier Vasquez is returning to the Bronx in pinstripes this season. The pitcher previously played for the Yankees in 2004.
