Just over the past few years alone, there have been some great victories at the local level, and there have been some disappointments. more
It’s 2020, and there are so many things to look forward to. For us here at The Riverdale Press, it’s a celebration of our 70th anniversary. more
Your readers should know that the Dec. 12 headline story and editorial (re: “Check politics at the door,” Dec. 12) was prompted by a resolution ending in, “therefore be it resolved that the aging committee of Bronx Community Board 8 urges the MTA to consider the needs of seniors and people with mobility issues when determining the number and schedule of express buses serving the communities of Bronx Community Board 8.” more
I live next to the Fieldston School, but otherwise have no connection to it, so I cannot pass judgment on its firing of J.B. Brager. However, your entire story clearly adopted the narrative of Brager’s supporters, framing the controversy in their terms, and giving only token coverage to Brager’s critics.

Reading in the Jan. 11 New York Times about how elected officials in Queens stepped in to save Neir’s Tavern — a bar in the Woodhaven section of the borough that opened in 1829, making it the oldest continuous bar in New York City operating at the same location — I couldn’t help but think, why didn’t our elected officials in Riverdale step in early enough to save the Villa Rosa Bonheur, one of the most beautiful buildings in the Bronx — if not the entire City of New York — dating back to 1924? more
Alessandra Biaggi has a novel approach when it comes to elections: Just because she supports one candidate, doesn’t mean she opposes another. Except the state senator’s approach shouldn’t be so novel. more
I recently marched with tens of thousands of people in a solidarity march against hate and anti-Semitism. As someone who has seen anti-Semitic graffiti and language in my own place of work, it is uplifting to stand with friends and allies in the constant struggle against fear, bias and hate. more
