"Bronx Boro Prez Issues Protest at Yankees Parking Hearing" Streetsblog 9/6/7

Streetsblog reports on a statement of protest read by a representative of Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion, Jr., at this morning's meeting of the NYC Industrial Development Agency (IDA), ahead of an expected Tuesday vote on the city's deal with the Yankees to subsidize the construction of three parking garages.

Click the title above to read his statement over at Streetsblog.

But do pay heed to "Yumm's" comment which follows the post:

"This is the same BP who purged the local community board of people critical of this project and its crappy process, which the BP provided cover for for the past 4-5 years.

"But now running for mayor...."

Well said, Yumm. And while we are all gazing in the BP's direction, let's keep in mind what Randy Levine of the Yankees helpfully pointed out on numerous occasions: that the idea of siting the new stadium in our much loved and utilized park came directly from Mr. Carrion!
