Bronx News Roundup, Oct. 12

If you missed it, here's a separate roundup of headlines concerning last week's appalling gay bias attacks in Morris Heights.

The building where the beatings took place--a brick three-family home at 1910 Osborne Place--is an example of the risky mortgage lending that's led to a growing number of abandoned properties across the city. Banks should notify the NYPD about empty buildings where gang members and dangerous squatters can set up shop, writes the Daily News' Michael Daly.

The four men accused in the Bronx synagogue bomb plot were denied a mistrial yesterday. The men's lawyers requested a mistrial on the grounds that jurors had been shown evidence that was not admitted during the trial; the request was denied, though one juror was dismissed from the case.

The 109-year-old Willis Avenue Bridge will be floated to New Jersey and disassembled this fall. The bridge, connecting the Bronx the northern Manhattan, has been replaced by a new structure.

Bronx Daily News reporter Patrice O'Shaughnessy writes of an unlikely connection between sources from two separate stories she wrote, over the span of several decades, both taking place in the Bronx.

Two Bronx residents have been accused of a major shoplifting heist at the Palisades Mall in Westchester.

A new book takes a look at the life and hardships of Yankees legend Mickey Mantle. 

Speaking of the Yankees: fans are irked by a huge increase in stadium parking fees. The garages have hiked their prices from $23 to--yikes--$40 for a space.

  1. Hey you guys, just wanted to correct you on something. The Palisades mall is located in West Nyack which is in Rockland County.
