Here are some Bronx-related stories which we've rounded up you, our lovely readers, while trolling the interweb with our horse and lasso this fine morning:

[New York Times] (BD NOTE: This wasn't exactly what I was talking about when yearning for usable retail close-by, but I sure am happy that followers of Santeria have a convenient place to shop!)

There's also a relevant Crain's article that requires a subscription to access, so we can't provide the link...but if you'd like to check it out, Google 'cheerless bronx needs a boost crain's' and it will be the first article to pop up.
