The Bronx is burning ... from fossil fuel
(Page 3 of 3)
By Kristin Hart
The truth is, our self-interest — both as individuals and as a community — is much better served by a strong, healthy Bronx than by the option of having a perfect (though probably modified and definitely over-packaged) tomato delivered to our homes. We should demand that our taxpayer money be used, instead, to develop the Bronx waterfront responsibly. So take that coupon from Fresh Direct, fold it up into a paper boat, and float it down the river. Oh no, wait: you can’t get to the river. So recycle it. And take a walk to your local grocer.
