That is great news about the Dog Run. I must say that young man is handsome indeed. He is clearly someone that cares about the community! Go Bronx!

Don't give up on a skating rink in The Bronx! Just please, don't destroy any more parkland to build it. Haven't the Yankees, the EPA, and the City taken enough away from us? There are enough empty and abandoned buildings to open up a real skating rink once and for all. This artificial ice surface is amazing- it could be open year-round. Business leaders listen up- there is a real demand for this. It's time to invest in what the residents want.
