22 Aug

With only 3 weeks (+ a day) to go before the critical primary vote on Thurs., Sept. 13 for staten senator, in the 34th Senate District (and others all over the city), the Northwest Bronx Community and Clergy Coalition is hosting a Town Hall tonight at 6:30 p.m. at Monroe College, 2501 Jerome Ave. (near Fordham Road) for Senate candidates interested in representing a few northwest Bronx districts. Alessandra Biaggi will be there. I heard that her opponent, incumbent Jeff Klein has not RSVP’d. Anyone interested in learning where candidates stand on many critical issues — health care, housing, schools, jobs, etc. — are welcome to attend.

House Explosion on 234th St. & Tibbett Ave. in Kingsbridge/Bronx

27 Sep

If you heard the loud explosion this morning in Kingsbridge/Bronx (we did) it was at least one house on 234th St. and Tibbett Ave. the southwest corner right near the steps up to Waldo Ave. in Riverdale. I didn’t count but it seemed like 50 or 60 fire engines of every type and police cars are there. I’m still hearing helicopters and sirens more than an hour later. I just  read a tweet from Dean Meminger of NY1 that a firefighter was killed “while responding to an illegal drug lab fire.” So sad and upsetting. I hope everyone else is OK.
