Waterfront development proposals stir concern

The rush is on to develop a 13-acre, state-owned site on the Harlem River waterfront in Port Morris. So far, two ambitious proposals have been leaked to the media—one calling for a soccer stadium and 550 apartments, the other calling for 2,000 units. Both would include retail and community space. But environmental advocates and City Councilwoman Diana Ayala say that neither proposal is good for residents.

NYCHA residents say fellow tenants should be accountable for rat infestations

The city’s $32 million war on rats targets what it deems the most rat-infested areas — rat reservoirs — arming them with paved dirt floors, solar-powered trash compactors and a new trash pickup schedule that eliminates bags from sitting out overnight. Since none of the public housing complexes in Bronx 1 are considered rat reservoirs, their remediation is limited to education and recycling programs that some fear won’t solve the problem.
