True to its role as the “newspaper of record” for our community, The Riverdale Press has provided timely coverage of the important land use issues that threaten to adversely impact our community, environment, livability and accelerated development activities — specifically city planning’s pending proposed revision of the Special Natural Area District, which it now seeks to call the Special Natural Resources District. more
I write as a constituent, person of faith, and a volunteer with Catholic Relief Services. My congressman, Eliot Engel, introduced H.R. 2615, the United States-Northern Triangle Enhanced Engagement Act, which recently passed in the House and has been referred to the Senate. more
In a reply to my June 20 letter (re: “Dinowitz should quit”), Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz made asinine comments about strengthening local school security, and leveled a personal attack on my credentials as an informed citizen. more
Thank you to Sen. Alessandra Biaggi for standing up for fresh, healthy food for those of us in the Bronx. I write to ask her to make a specific appeal for the GrowNYC summer farmers’ markets.
