As the New York Yankees get ready for Games 3, 4 and 5 of the American League Championship Series at Yankee Stadium today, tomorrow and Thursday, MTA Metro-North Railroad and MTA New York City Transit will be ready to help fans get to the games with special train service.

Yankee Stadium is easily accessible via the  and / trains to 161 Street -ankee Stadium, and on Metro-North Railroad. The Hudson Line, Harlem Line and New Haven Line will have special service to Yankees – E. 153rd Street, and the railroad will operate shuttle service from Grand Central Terminal and Harlem – 125th Street. From the subway or Metro-North, fans have just a few short steps before they’re at the gate.

On the subway, for some added pre-game fun, the four-car “Nostalgia Special” is scheduled to leave Grand Central – 42nd Street approximately one hour before game time for all three games. The cars, originally operated by the Interborough Rapid Transit (IRT) system, entered service in 1917 and worked into the early 1960s. They are not air conditioned like the rest of NYC Transit’s 6,300 subway cars, but there will be plenty of fans on board–Yankee fans, that is.

Riding Metro-North Railroad is another fast, convenient way to catch the American League Championship Series at Yankee Stadium. Customers can take Metro-North’s special “Yankee Clipper” shuttle service to the Stadium on the Hudson, Harlem and New Haven Lines, as well…

Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. and Harris County (Texas) Judge Lina Hidalgo have placed a friendly wager, as the New York Yankees get set to take on the Houston Astros in Major League Baseball’s (MLB) American League Championship Series (ALCS).

Borough President Diaz, Jr., a Bronxite who grew up emulating former New York Yankees third baseman Graig Nettles, has offered up food from Empanology, a “Ruben Diaz, Jr.” sandwich” from Mike’s Deli, cannolis from Geno’s Pastry Shop & Café, beverages from the Bronx Brewery, and clothing from Bronx Native, should the Yankees lose to the Astros.

Judge Hidalgo has wagered barbecue (including brisket) from Gatlin’s Barbecue, drinks from Saint Arnolds Brewery, and tamales from Texas Tamale Company.

“As a lifelong Yankees fan who is from the home of The Bronx Bombers, and the highest ranking New York City elected official that grew up watching our team set a unsurpassed standard of excellence in sports, I look forward to feasting on great Texas barbeque as we mosey on past the Astros and win our 41st American League pennant,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr.

Editorial

You should know that thirteen years ago, to be exact, on April 01, 2006, I organized, together with Radio Visión Cristiana Internacional, Radio Cántico Nuevo and the New York Hispanic Clergy Organization, the first massive pro-immigrant march across the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City.

In response to a national call-to-action for every major city in the nation to organize and protest the mistreatment of immigrants, and to address the necessity of solving the immigration problem in the nation, we, the Hispanic Ministers and other community groups organized the Great Walk in Solidarity with Immigrants where thousands of people joined us marching across the Brooklyn Bridge to 26 Federal Plaza, where our rally was held.

Referring to our march, Ms. Leslie Casmir, in her article titled “Marching to Stay Here: Thousands Rally vs Immigrant Crackdown” in the New York Daily News on April 02, 2006 wrote the following: “Waving the flags of their homelands, tens of thousands of legal and undocumented immigrants streamed over the Brooklyn Bridge yesterday to protest a proposed crackdown on border crossing. The march was a smaller version of a massive pro-immigrant rally in Los Angeles last month but was still much bigger than anticipated – with word being spread mainly through Spanish churches and media.”

Various major news and media outlets in New York covered the Great Walk in Solidarity with Immigrants, expressing their admiration for the march.

Ms. Lorena Mongelli wrote the following in the New York Post on April 02, 2006: “A roiling sea of immigrants – many of them in the country illegally – and their supporters poured across the Brooklyn Bridge and into Manhattan yesterday to protest what they call “oppressive” reform measures currently under consideration in Congress. Marchers, waving flags from Mexico, Colombia, Honduras and El Salvador, chanted and carried signs recalling America’s roots during the demonstration, organized by state Sen….

BlocPower Community Corporation, a non-profit with a mission to make city buildings greener, healthier, smarter, and more profitable for all, is launching “Green the Bronx,” a campaign to educate multifamily building owners and residents in the Bronx about the benefits of Cold Climate Air Source Heat Pumps (heat pumps), a clean heating and cooling technology. The campaign will target buildings that still use oil heating systems and educate building owners about the environmental, health, and financial benefits of switching to heat pumps.

BlocPower Community Corporation is managing one of 14 Clean Heating and Cooling Community Campaigns administered by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) throughout the state and is the only one operating in the Bronx. The campaigns support Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s Green New Deal, the most aggressive climate change program in the nation as well as the state’s nation-leading goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 85 percent by 2050.

The Bronx is well known for having one of the highest asthma rates in the U.S. due to the pollution and housing conditions. “Green the Bronx” is promulgating heat pumps, which are fuelfree and cause no particulate emissions. This will result in cleaner air in one of the highest asthma rate areas of the country. The systems also provide excellent filters to deliver superior indoor air quality.

“We are thrilled to work with NYSERDA on our shared mission to promote clean heating and cooling while…
