The Archdiocese of New York has announced a devastating blow for Bronxites as it will…
Reports came in from NY1 and The Daily News and Twitter of reports of an explosion at JFK High School in Marble Hill area of Manhattan (which is attached to The Bronx) ripping through 3 floors of the building. Mike Allen of The Bronx said on twitter, “Blast was incredibly loud, shook my apartment even on 18th floor.”
About 3 years ago, Welcome2TheBronx wrote about the possibility of having the Metro North rail yards in Melrose at 149th Street decked over much like the Hudson Rail Yards and have it developed into office space and affordable housing. Today, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr made a similar proposal along with two other Bronx locations stating that since Queens didn’t want it to happen at the Sunnyside yards, The Bronx would be happy to take those monies.
The other 2 locations identified are the 4 train rail yards by Lehman College in Bedford Park just west of the Grand Concourse and the 1 train rail yards just west of Broadway between Riverdale and Kingsbridge.
