Bronx News Roundup, Oct. 21

Bronxites Occupy Wall Street
It took a few weeks but Bronxites are getting together to support the protest movement that began in Zuccotti Park and has spread across the country and the world.

Breaking Bronx, the Norwood News' new blog, has a good roundup on Occupy activities and coverage, including news of Occupy Bronx getting together with the Northwest Bronx Community and Clergy Coalition for its big meeting tomorrow at St. Nicholas of Tolentine Church.

Some more coverage in the Mott Haven Herald here, including Buddy Stein's editorial supporting the borough's entry into the fray

Talk about a teachable moment: Parents who long to show their kids what democracy looks like but worry about bringing them to a crowded protest heavily dominated by adults, are in luck. Occupy Wall Street is hosting a family evening and sleepover tonight in Zuccotti Park. Another draw is kids' music star Dan Zanes.

More Bronx News
The New York Times' "Lens" blog highlights the new Bronx Documentary Center in Melrose, which will show the work of Tim Hetherington, the photo-journalist who died in Libya and was an inspiration for the birth of the Center.

In Bronx Ink, Yemenis talk about the turmoil they left behind.

A federal grant comes to the Bronx to protect women victims of abuse and to track the cases of their attackers.

Riverdale Press covers the borough's first education summit ever at Lehman College.

What a mess: The Press also reports on the lousy conditions at the new location of PS 51/The Bronx New School. More chemicals, a leaky roof, and lousy wiring are riling parents who were already fed up after being told in August that the Bedford Park school had to close because chemical contamination discovered at the site.
