Bronx News Roudup, Dec. 6

Tue, 06 Dec 2011 14:47:00 +0000

The Supreme Court decided not to review a lower court decision that upholds the city's right to refuse to provide space in city schools for religious groups. The case emanated from the Bronx Household of Faith's use of PS 15 on Andrews Avenue in University Heights. Councilman Fernando Cabrera, a pastor himself, is proposing a change to state law to allow for the use of public schools for religious services. Norwood News has a lovely farewell to Sal of Sals's Pizza on Bainbridge Avenue, who is...

Jenny (J-Lo that is) was, uh, not on the block in a Fiat ad in which she appears to be in the Boogiedown navigating the streets but isn't. A Bronx teen creates a 3-D printer. The public corruption trial of Councilman Larry Seabrook is expected to wrap up this week.  A teen is recovering after being shot outside his Norwood apartment last week. A growing population of Mexican immigrants in the Bronx and NYC are falling way behind in high school graduation rates. This story in the...

Wed, 23 Nov 2011 15:31:00 +0000

Today, we're devoting the roundup to the living wage legislation, which was debated in a City Council Committee hearing yesterday. Norwood News tweeted live from the hearing. One of the focuses of a New York Times article is Council Speaker Christine Quinn's questioning of both sides, including her asking opponents of the bill if they'd support it if it were scaled back to only include gigantic developments like stadiums and airports. Maybe, they said. As Azi Paybarah of Capital points...

The latest episode in the Seabrook trial features Stanley Schlein, a long-time attorney/counselor/fixer/ballot-challenger for Bronx Democratic political powers, and sheds a little light on the connection between business and politics in the borough. St. Augustine Church, a 162-year-old parish in the south Bronx, is being closed and merged with Our Lady of Victory Church. With Thanksgiving a week away, POTS (Part of the Solution) co-executive director Jack Marth writes about the programs...

If you click on nothing else in this roundup today, click on this. It's a fascinating interview in SchoolBook with PS 86 principal Sheldon Benardo, whose school has received an A in the last five school report cards. What's particularly interesting is how candid Benardo is about being a "beneficiary of a corrupt system." When he became assistant principal and then a principal at PS 7 it was a direct result of political connections through his brother. He was barely interviewed for the principal...

Happy Veterans' Day.  Four shootings and three murders in the northwest Bronx in the last two weeks have the community on edge.   Twenty fifth and sixth graders from PS 86 (the school right behind the Kingsbridge Armory) are headed to Paris -- really. Macy's, opening its first store in the five boroughs in 15 years, is coming to Bay Plaza.  A beloved three-year-old restaurant in Melrose is closing its doors.  The latest in the Seabrook corruption trial.

Crazy. The city Board of Elections is spending millions of dollars to fully staff Election Day in the Bronx next Tuesday, even though the only person on the ballot is District Attorney Robert Johnson, who is running unopposed.  In what tenant advocates say is the highest settlement in a case involving a landlord who overcharged a tenant, a Norwood woman should receive $33,0000 from Urban American Management. In Kappstatter's column this week: The ticket-fixing scandal he's prosecuting...

Is the creation of small specialized high schools siphoning off good students from the few still-remaining large schools like DeWitt Clinton, which just received an F on its progress report? That's the question posed by this article in the Daily News today. The Bronx added 3.8 percent more chain stores this year -- much more than the 1.6% citywide -- the Wall Street Journal reports following the release of a report from the Center for an Urban Future. The old Fordham Library will not become...

Bummer: A Nor'easter is headed our way.  Restaurant Week in the Boogiedown (Savor the Bronx) and its featured restaurants are all well and good, says Gothamist, but there are many under-noticed culinary gems in the borough that deserve your attention. The Occupy Bronx protesters, who have been meeting at (but not really occupying) Fordham Plaza on Saturday have a famous borough-based corporate target in their sights: The New York Yankees. A new push to step up enforcement of the...
