Bronx News Roundup, Nov. 3

On the morning after, it appears Democrats will retain control of the state senate. (This is not a done deal, we'll keep you updated.) But with another razor thin majority, will they be able to do anything with it? [Update: it now seems as if Democrats will be fortunate to come away with a dead-locked state senate, as GOPers appear to be making gains in the NYC suburbs.)

Eric Schneiderman, a state senator from the Upper West Side who represents a small fraction of the Bronx (and used to represent more of the borough until redistricting eight years ago), will be the state's next Attorney General.

The Bronx Historical Society is looking to raise $2 million to create and endowment for Poe Cottage, which costs about $300,000 a year to run and is currently undergoing renovations.

The city's overall school report cards came out today. The Bronx managed to have the school with the best grade (Theater Arts Production Company School) and the worst (New Day Academy).

Four members of a Mott Haven family were killed in a Maryland car accident. They were on their way back to the Bronx from Virginia Beach.

Bronx native Prince Royce, the new bachata singing sensation, is exploding onto the Latin pop scene. He'll headline his first US concert at Lehman Center on Nov. 12 and 13.

State Senator Jeff Klein pulled out a win over pesky GOP challenger Frank Vernuccio.

After eating at the fast-food slider shop every Friday for four straight years, 27-year-old Bronxite Victor Gradowski will be inducted into the White Castle Cravers Hall of Fame. A White Castle official compared Gradowski's burger run to Joe DiMaggio's untouchable 56-game hitting streak. It remains unclear if he is friends with Harold or Kumar.
