5.23.14 Bronx News (and Fun) that Matters

23 May

Norwood News reports on the State Senate primary in District 34: “Senator Jeff Klein emerged victorious in securing an endorsement from the Benjamin Franklin Reform Democratic Club, after a lengthy evening of accusations of betrayal, debates, rebuttals and questions over whether their decision could cause a divide.” The vote, in Riverdale last night, was 96 to 38.

The long-time Epiphany Lutheran Church on East 206th Street in Norwood is going to be an Ethiopian Church, now that the latter bought the gorgeous but repair-needing building for $1.3 million, which they acquired from decades of saving. (Daily News)

A union is saying that it was a “faulty 911 processing system [that] caused dispatch error during Spuyten-Duyvil Derailment.” (News 12)

A few fun Bronx art stuff this weekend:

Current art exhibits at the FREE shows at Bronx Museum of Arts.

At Wave Hill in Riverdale, take part in a family art class making wash-away patios out of clay on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. (I’m not precisely sure what wash-away patios are but it sounds cool, and my family has gone a bunch of enjoyable times.)

Next Wednesday, check out the second edition of the Bronx memoir project at the Bronx Documentary Center in Melrose.

(I want to post a longer Bronx Art Scene feature once a week, focusing on art events, classes, etc., especially if they are free or low-cost. To do that, I need groups to submit a maximum of two events/happenings — by Wed. at noon — each of which shouldn’t be more than two sentences and should include links to your websites for more information. I don’t have the time right now to go through press releases, etc., so sending that to me won’t be helpful. Let’s try it out next week. My email is bronxmatters-at-gmail.com. Thanks! -Jordan)
