Mott haven

The pop-up programs, which include no touch play areas for kids, plant giveaways, and musical entertainment, are coming to Astoria, Kingsbridge, South Bronx and Mott Haven.
Protesters, witnesses, journalists, and others remember the NYPD's violent raid on a protest in the South Bronx on June 4, 2020.
The developers were converting the Bronx building known for its prominent History Channel billboard for a new charter school, and hired architect Sir David Adjaye for the $50 million redesign.
“They need to try something different this time if they're actually going to stand up against this kind of egregious misconduct.”
"Why are we spending all this money arresting people and dismissing it the next day but for the fact that we’re trying to discourage people from engaging in First Amendment activity?"
The report stops short of faulting specific police leaders, including Commissioner Dermot Shea, for any role in the documented “deficiencies.”
Asked why he would trust the word of the NYPD — a frequent source of misinformation about protesters — over the findings over Human Rights Watch, the mayor seemed to suggest that the report was lacking the perspective of law enforcement.
The international humanitarian group recommends the discipline and possible termination of NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea and Chief of Department Terence Monahan.
“The police commissioner and the mayor have been allowed to totally duck what they did in the Mott Haven kettle."
The next morning, de Blasio praised the NYPD's handling of the arrest, insisting that firsthand reports of police violence were inaccurate.
“I got three jobs. I got two kids. I’m trying to be an upstanding member of society.”
"There's no way that Dermot Shea and the mayor don't know who I am after six years of speaking at CCRB meetings, ambushing them at Gracie Mansion and City Hall."
