New York City Mayor Adams today opened 183 deeply affordable homes and a cultural arts center on the former site of the Spofford Juvenile Detention Center in the Hunts Point neighborhood of the Bronx, where he was held at 15 years old. The detention center was closed in 2011, after 54 years in operation with notoriously poor conditions for the youth detained there. The full five-acre redevelopment project, called The Peninsula, will bring 740 affordable homes, an early childhood education center, a wellness center, a one-acre public plaza, and a supermarket to Hunts Point.

The $121 million, 100-percent affordable housing project — with retail space and studio space for emerging artists — reflects Mayor Adams’ commitment to get New Yorkers into safe, high-quality, affordable homes, as outlined in his blueprint for the city’s affordable housing crisis, “Housing Our Neighbors: A Blueprint for Housing and Homelessness.” The first phase of the project, completed today, includes 183 affordable homes for New Yorkers earning between 30 and 80 percent of the area median income, with 18 reserved for formerly homeless New Yorkers. The building offers a wide range of amenities, including a community room, a children’s playroom, a fitness room, and bike storage…

Street Renaming Petition To Honor Mario D’Agostino
The Bronx Daily | Bronx.com

Mario D’Agostino, who passed away June 14, 2020, was a true leader in his community in the Bronx and left his mark on the neighborhood and everyone, who had the pleasure of knowing him. 

Mario was an honorable man, who changed people’s lives with his beautiful mind, strong work ethic, positive outlook on life and investing in his favorite part of New York City, the Bronx.

Editorial

You should know that in one of his first public appearances, after having resigned as Governor for New York State, Andrew Cuomo will be visiting the South Bronx. His visit to the Bronx is to meet with Members of “The New York Hispanic Clergy Organization”, which I preside over.

As you know, last summer Governor Cuomo resigned, when he was accused and practically abandoned by all his friends, politicians, and community groups, whom he had helped in the past. These so-called friends, and groups that were all too happy to kiss his ring, joined the “cancel culture” environment, that plaques us all, without due process, they washed their hands with a dismissive attitude, sending the message “Crucify him, crucify him”.

Several courts and judges have dismissed the allegations of “sexual harassment” against Governor Cuomo. With this episode behind him, Governor Cuomo has begun to visit and make public appearances by visiting different faith-based organizations and community groups.

It is very important for you to know that Governor Cuomo’s first public visit was to “God’s Battalion of Prayer Temple” in East Flatbush, Brooklyn on Sunday March 06, 2022. His next planned visit is to the “New York Hispanic Clergy Organization” in the South Bronx.

You should also know that in a recent poll, Governor Cuomo, without being a candidate nor having announced his political aspirations, has polled with just four (4) points behind Governor Kathy Hochul.

As you know, Governor Hochul was a friend and she was handpicked by Cuomo to be his Lieutenant Governor. However, she was among one of the first to throw him under the bus, in the midst of the allegations, launched against him.

I imagine that those four (4) points will evaporate very soon and Governor Hochul will have to consider asking Governor Cuomo for his support, if she wishes to be officially elected by the people to the governorship.

As President of the “New York Hispanic Clergy Organization”, I am looking forward to hosting Governor Cuomo on Thursday, March 17, 2022. We welcome him to the South…

New York City Mayor Eric Adams and Hunts Point community leaders today released Hunts Point Forward, a comprehensive plan to create economic opportunity and improve quality of life for New Yorkers in the Hunts Point neighborhood of the South Bronx.

Backed by an initial $40 million commitment from Mayor Adams, the plan outlines a 15-year vision shared by the city and the community with more than 70 short- and long-term recommendations for creating family-sustaining jobs, improving public safety, enhancing community health and access to healthy food, promoting environmental justice, and delivering upgrades to open space, transportation, and other key community infrastructure.

“My vision for the city’s economic comeback starts right here in Hunts Point, in a community that kept the entire city fed during the CoViD-19 pandemic,” said Mayor Adams. “This plan delivers immediate support and a long-term vision to make sure Hunts Point residents have the public safety, health care access, and green space that all New Yorkers deserve. I want to thank Councilmember Salamanca for his leadership in this process and all of the community organizations and residents who took time to build this plan with us from the ground up; I look forward to working with all of them to continue to ‘Get Stuff Done.’”

“Today, the Adams administration is doubling down on our commitment to Hunts Point and to the families, small businesses, community-based organizations, and local stakeholders who make the neighborhood so unique,” said Deputy Mayor for Economic and Workforce Development Maria Torres-Springer. “I applaud this comprehensive and community-driven plan and believe that these investments will power a more equitable recovery and a better future for Hunts Point.”

“‘Hunts Point Forward’ is a plan for the…

The new season of the NFL is here, and the draft for the season 2022-23 is over. A lot has happened during this period, and in a few weeks, the rollercoaster of emotions will be underway. Here, we will discuss some of the teams and their position for the game.

Buffalo Bills

The Bills have drafted an incredible team. Their team is balanced and looks formidable, probably favorites to win this season. The reason for the Bills to be considered favorites is Josh Allen. He is an MVP contender for the 2022-23 season because he locked horns with Patrick Mahomes and gave him a tough time in an overtime playoff in 2021.

Since Allen joined them, the Bills have won 10 matches in three consecutive seasons. The chances are bright for them to win the AFC East title for the third time straight. Bills were also able to sign Von Miller, who will join hands with a sturdy defense, Tre’Davious White and Tremaine Edmunds.

Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs are looking to strengthen their catching. They have traded Tyreek Hill to Dolphins and, in return, remodeled their offense. They have also recruited new faces, like JuJu Smith, Marquez Valdes, and Skyy Moore, to help Mahomes.

Patrick Mahomes still makes waves in the NFL betting. He will be marching the offensive attack this season with the newcomers, which makes him a…
