There’s a lot of articles (see below) hitting the press today (and tomorrow) about Ruben endorsing the ice hockey proposal. If you can rally your supporters, it would be great to continue commenting on all of these articles
BRONX, August 22, 2012 — Afrika Bambaataa, Bronx native and Hip Hop pioneer, has signed a letter-of-intent to help create a National Museum of Hip Hop in the Bronx's landmark Kingsbridge Armory, not far from where Hip Hop culture originated, if Youngwoo & Associates, the group bidding to transform the Bronx's Kingsbridge Armory into a market/food/recreation destination is selected as the developer by the NYC EDC.
The Armory’s been empty for nearly 20 years and, if YWA wins the bid, the project is expected to bring jobs and stimulate new businesses including low-cost space for start-ups.
Mercado Mirabo has pledges to collaborate with CJ CGV, the company offering the world’s first advanced 4D environmental effects bringing a sensory-immersive cinema experience to moviegoers. The theater at Mercado Mirabo would be the first in the nation to have the advanced 4D effects. Mercado Mirabo also has partnership agreements with Crunch Gym, The New York Gauchos basketball program and Brooklyn Boulders rock climbing gym and with international arts leaders Putumayo World Music, Pinta, and Grupo Ars.
Mr. Bambaataa is rounding up support from an alliance and team of legendary Hip Hop pioneers and plans to meet with the Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. to champion the project.
Peace the Bronx Borough President is going to make a formal announcement tomorrow throwing his support behind the Kingsbridge National Ice Center proposal which is not what the community wants nor needs.

There is another proposal that offers the Bronx a more diverse mix of sports, entertainment and retail shops that he has not considered.
