Bronx News Roundup, Oct. 5

A Soundview woman whose apartment is infested with bedbugs claims she picked them up during a visit to Bronx County Family Court last month. The bloodsuckers were also found recently at the Bronx DA's office

Daily News columnist Patrice O'Shaughnessy describes a recent visit to the Hunts Point fish market, which replaced Manhattan's famous Fulton Fish Market five years ago. The New Fulton Fish Market Cooperative at Hunts Point (it's full name) is the second largest wholesale seafood market in the world.

With tongue in cheek, the Daily News' Bob Kappstatter writes: "I am publicly announcing my support for Rick Lazio for Bronx Supreme Court justice."

A year ago, Mayor Bloomberg's promised to launch Harlem Children's Zone-style antipoverty programs in Brooklyn and the South Bronx. The programs have yet to materialize.

Violent crime is on the rise. Borough-wide, there have been more murders, rapes, robberies, and felony-assaults than this time last year.

State Senator Ruben Diaz, Sr. may endorse gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino, the man Diaz's son, BP Ruben Diaz, Jr., recently called an "utter nut job."

Two young Bronxites - Marvin Figueroa and Antoinette Rangel - have landed White House internships.

Lincoln Hospital has received a state grant to build a 60-bed psychiatric unit. (Subscription needed.)

Students from University Heights Secondary School (which is now located in Morrisania) traveled to Washington DC at the weekend for the "One Nation Rally."

Cardinal Spellman High School's girls soccer team is on fire this season.


  1. Way to miss the point!

    Go for the Rick Lazio nonsense, instead of reporting on the news that affects our community.

    "Dark and dangerous

    Folks around the Williamsbridge Oval are waiting - and waiting - for 21 park lights to be fixed.

    The Friends of the Oval first contacted the city Department of Transportation (they deal with lights) July 27.

    Since then, Parks, local electeds, police precinct and Community Board 7 still can't seem to get action from Bronx DOT Commish Connie Moran."

  2. This is Mark Rodriguez and regarding the bedbugs in Bronx Family Court, that is nothing new. A few years ago I went to jail when I told Judge Myrna Martinez Perez she had a bug up her ass. Now we know it is true! I guess we now have a good reason to shut down Family Court!
