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.

  • South Bronx Tries To Keep Its Soul Amid Gentrification

    Baz Luhrmann's Netflix show The Get Down charts the history of hip hop in the South Bronx. As the $120 million project becomes the talk of the town, actual residents fight to maintain the soul of the neighborhood despite encroaching gentrification. Developers have been trying to change the image of the area, rebranding it as The Piano District, with rumors of the South Bronx becoming the next hipster mecca like Williamsburg in Brooklyn. Real estate firms are working to develop luxury apartment buildings, boutique hotels and nightclubs. Mychal Johnson, a member of the community group South Bronx Unite says, “There’s been a lot of advancement in our community but the question remains for whom and at what cost?” https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/aug/13/south-bronx-hip-hop-gentrificatio...

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. Subscribe to the Youth Climate Report YouTube Channel to receive easy access to the full In-Depth Video Archives as well as short and feature length documentary films produced by youth around the world.
