  • South Bronx Unite: In Search of Environmental Justice [Youth Climate Report: In-Depth]

    South Bronx Unite is a coalition of South Bronx residents, organizations, and allies working together to improve and protect the social, environmental, and economic future of the South Bronx. South Bronx Unite formed in response to the proposed relocation of Fresh Direct from Long Island City in Queens to the Harlem River Yard, a 96‐acre Port Morris/Mott Haven waterfront parcel of public land leased by the New York State Department of Transportation to Harlem River Yard Ventures in 1991 for 99 years. In an undemocratic and community excluded process, the City and State have offered Fresh Direct $128 million of publicly financed subsidies to assist with Fresh Direct’s proposed move to the Harlem River Yard. Even though Fresh Direct would introduce thousands of vehicle and truck trips to Sou...

  • IMG_0735 Mychal Johnson From South Bronx Unite

    South Bronx Unite has sue to stop Fresh Direct from bringing upwards of 3000 daily vehicle trips to the South Bronx, a community already suffering from asthma rates that are eight times the national average. They also oppose the City's and State's continued support for siting polluting businesses on public land along the South Bronx waterfront The Fresh Direct deal epitomizes how EDC/IDA continues to sponsor development projects that benefit favored businesses and developers, while shutting out local community voices. The city completely excluded South Bronx residents from the decision to bring thousands of diesel trucks and vehicles through the neighborhood and occupy public waterfront land that is supposed to benefit the public, not private businesse. Even the Borough President Rubén Dia...

South Bronx Unite is a coalition of South Bronx residents, organizations, and allies working together to improve and protect the social, environmental, and economic future of the South Bronx. South Bronx Unite formed in response to the proposed relocation of Fresh Direct from Long Island City in Queens to the Harlem River Yard, a 96‐acre Port Morris/Mott Haven waterfront parcel of public land leased by the New York State Department of Transportation to Harlem River Yard Ventures in 1991 for 99 years. In an undemocratic and community excluded process, the City and State have offered Fresh Direct $128 million of publicly financed subsidies to assist with Fresh Direct’s proposed move to the Harlem River Yard. Even though Fresh Direct would introduce thousands of vehicle and truck trips to South Bronx neighborhoods every single day, the City and Fresh Direct failed to adequately review the environmental impacts associated with the project as required by State and Local laws and excluded the affected community from the decision‐making process. http://southbronxunite.org/ At Brook Park, 100 pepper plants have taken root in a corner of the garden known as the “youth farm.” Their primary caretakers are teenagers with criminal records who were sent to work in the garden through a court order as an alternative to incarceration. Ray Figueroa Jr is the program director for Friends of Brook Park, which runs the garden. A few of the youth have completed their requirements but continue to work at the Youth Farm. http://friendsofbrookpark.org/ Youth Climate Report is a youth led documentary initiative that operates under the leadership of Neko Harbour Productions, in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
