Many kids growing up in The Bronx playing baseball dream of playing for the Yankees…
Hasta la vista, Manchester City Football Club Soccer Stadium in The Bronx?
“Developers behind a proposal to build the city’s first Major League Soccer arena are looking to develop land near the Aqueduct Racetrack in Queens, after plans to build near Yankee Stadium fell apart, sources told Capital.”
Bronx Community College (BCC)’s Run the Bronx race will be held on May 3. This annual event was founded in 1978 by former college president and Tuskegee Airman Dr. Roscoe C. Brown.
Now in its 36th year, the Run has become a signature event for the borough. And there’s so much more to the day than just a high-spirited, friendly competition. Run the Bronx promotes fitness and wellness, a crucial issue in a borough that has the highest rates of asthma, diabetes and obesity in our city. BCC would like to further expand the annual race to encourage healthier habits and lifestyles in our common community and turn around these alarming statistics.
Yankee fans came out today to bear witness for an historic moment – Derek Jeter’s last opening day at the stadium and the beginning of the end of his almost 20 year career.
Jeter began playing for the Bronx Bombers in 1995 and since his debut, he’s been a one of the most popular players ever.
From The Wall Street Journal:
On the second floor of a warehouse in the Bronx’s Soundview neighborhood, men in costumes head-butt, clothes-line, and body-slam each other to the roars and jeers of more than 100 fans.
By day, the men are construction workers and restaurant managers—but by night, they turn into the Caveman and the Big Heavy, all taking part in the monthly spectacle organized by the Bronx Wrestling Federation, or BWF.
Whether you’re for or against the possibility of a new soccer stadium, please make every effort to attend tonight’s Town Hall Meeting at 7:30PM at 900 Grand Concourse at the corner of 161st Street.

If you’ve been following coverage on the backroom deals being made to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars for a proposed Major League Soccer Stadium in the Bronx then commentary from the Independent Budget Office should come as no surprise.
A soccer stadium deal with a reported price tag of anywhere from $300 million to $400 million seems to have been made behind the back of the community.
Just last night, dozens of community members gathered at the offices of Bronx Legal Services to discuss the deals that were being made without any community input in relation to the proposed Major League Soccer stadium for the New York City Football Club.
Marty Glickman, a son of the Bronx who was often referred to in his youth as the Jewish kid who could run faster than anyone in the neighborhood, is the subject of a documentary which premiers tonight on HBO.
