    This is another in a long line of slaps to the residents of the Bronx. Not only are the electeds giving away valuable land to Fresh Direct (FD),FD drives through this borough to deliver to Westchester County and to Riverdale. They need to become a partner in our waterfront efforts if they are to be allowed to proceed with this project.
