Bronx Terminal Market Media Coverage

El Diario's Maria Vega has a nice piece on the status of the Bronx Terminal Market redevelopment, especially now that the Olympics dream is essentially dead and the velodrome will no longer be part of the site. We have surmised all along that this secretive sweetheart deal, that included handing over the Bronx House of Detention without public review, was in part motivated by Doctoroff’s intense desire to secure the 2012 bid. Now that the dream is dead it will be interesting to see what happens.

There is also a story from Bronx 12 (with video) and 1010Wins, WBAI and WFUV and WNYC TV all ran pieces (no links, sorry).

Update: We forgot to mention Alexandra Ochoa's coverage of the event in Hoy.
