(Re: “Time For Honest Redistricting,” Dec. 21). To the Editor: If Mr. Larry Penner were to engage in “research” (a word foreign to his vocabulary) as opposed to “speaking off the top of his head” (words very familiar to him), he would discover the League of Women Voters has a 256-page policy paper. He would also discover LWV espouses such very liberal issues as gun control and reproductive rights (abortion). more
(Re: “Time to retire, Mr. Dinowitz,” Dec. 21) To the Editor: The Riverdale Press recently ran yet another vitriolic letter from Adam Stoler attacking Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz and the Benjamin Franklin Reform Democratic Club (“BFRDC”).  Almost all Mr. Stoler’s letters mention either Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz, Council Member Eric Dinowitz, or the BFRDC. more
To the Editor: “All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes.” more
To the Editor: Who is Benjamin F. Jackson, and why would he be trying to unseat Democratic Party District Leader Ramdat Singh? Ramdat is a founding member of the largest and most active Democratic political club in our community — the Unity Democrats. more
To the Editor: We are deeply disappointed by The Riverdale Press’ coverage of the Israel-Hamas War.  We too grieve for those whose lives have been devastated in Israel, as well as for our many Riverdale neighbors who mourn the tragic deaths and displacement of their family and friends.  more
The Israeli-Hamas war and its impact on greater Riverdale. The proliferation of illegal weed shops. A possible cricket stadium in Van Cortlandt Park. The merger of Saint Gabriel School with St. Margaret of Cortona School. more
To the Editor: I would like acknowledge and thank Nick and Joelle Lynch, proprietors of The Tree Army. For a number of years they have lit the Chanukah menorah sponsored by Chabad Lubavitch of Riverdale, which is located at the monument at 239th Street. more
(Re: “Anti-Muslim hate on rise,” Dec. 14) To the Editor: Last week’s Riverdale Press contained a rambling letter attacking “Dinowitz” with repeated false claims. Which Dinowitz the writer meant was not clear from the letter, but presumably he is talking about Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz. Among other things, he defends the use of the phrase, “from the river to the sea.” By this phrase, Palestinians mean the destruction of Israel and an end to the Jewish state and its people. more
(Re: “Is Bridge toll rebate enough for the Bronx?”) To the Editor: Thank you for your editorial. In my opinion, the bridge toll rebate is definitely not enough for residents of the Bronx who must commute by car into Manhattan below 60th Street. more
To the Editor: Up until the 1970 reapportionment, NYC Congressional districts were usually 100 percent within the borough. The same was true for Long Island and virtually all of the other 57 counties outside of NYC. more
