The Air Jordan 12 “Bordeaux” Might Be the Perfect Fall Retro

When Jordan Brand first announced that they’d be releasing a second Air Jordan 12 “Bordeaux,” one differing from the Public School collaboration, most immediately assumed that the follow-up pair wouldn’t be anywhere near as desirable as the first. And to some who value collabs over inline releases, no, they likely won’t be.

But the Air Jordan 12 “Bordeaux” shouldn’t be considered second best to its predecessor. There’s little need to compare the two, when simply embracing a great shoe for what it is outweighs any other scenario. This Air Jordan 12 is a stellar release and ideal for the season at hand, flush in the wine-inspired burgundy shade and a stabilizing Sail colored midsole.

Look for the Air Jordan 12 “Bordeaux” on October 14 for 0 at select Jordan Brand retailers like KicksStore.

BRONX NEWS: Hundreds of firefighters battling blaze in Bronx building


Nearly 200 firefighters were battling a five-alarm fire raging in a six-story building in the Bronx early Wednesday.


The blaze at 1920 Walton Ave. near E. 177th St. in the Mt. Hope section broke out around 6:28 a.m. and was still burning just before 9 a.m., officials said.


Hundreds of residents — many still in robes and pajamas or draped in blankets and towels — who evacuated the building gathered throughout the Mt. Hope Playground and basketball courts.


Carmen Alvarez, 27, who lives on the sixth floor with her 8-year-old daughter, woke to smoke billowing into her bedroom and immediately leapt into action.

Florida school named for Gen. Robert E. Lee destroyed


“There was smoke coming through the walls and no alarm going off,” she said. “I ran down the hall and started waking up my neighbors on the fifth and sixth floor.


“My daughter was coughing and crying. I was really scared.”


Some covered their mouths as plumes of smoke poured into the street. Others held small dogs and cats frightened from the morning’s chaos.


“I woke up around 6 and couldn’t breathe,” said a neighbor on the sixth floor who declined to give their name. “Twenty minutes later, the middle of the building caught on fire. The fire was coming from the roof. I looked up and there was a black hole in the ceiling.”

“I woke up at 4:45 and could smell smoke,” said Jessica Mercedes, 33, who lives on the sixth floor with her 12- and 13-year-old sons.


“We checked all the windows and the wires and didn’t see anything strange but then at 6:20 my youngest son ran in and said there was smoke coming into his room.”


Mercedes opened her front door to find neighbors beginning to evacuate.


“I saw my neighbors running out so I called 911, grabbed my sons and left,” she said.

In all, 198 firefighters from 44 units responded to the fire, which continued to rage through the ceilings and inner walls.


The blaze had spread into the cockloft — the space between the uppermost rafters and the roof.


FDNY officials said three firefighters suffered minor injuries.


“The fire spread through the cockloft — the space between the interior ceiling and the exterior roof,” said Jim Long, FDNY Director of Public Information. “That’s what made this a difficult fire to address. It’s concealed and you gotta track it down while it’s running on you and spreading.”

“We’re gonna be here for a little bit,” Long said.


Although the building was only partially evacuated, Long said residents on the lower floor were safe from the blaze above.


“It’s still an active scene but it’s not going to burn down, it’s only going to spread up,” he said.


Long said it was fortunate more people were not hurt.

“At this time of the morning it’s somewhat of a miracle there were no real injuries,” he said.


Three firefighters suffered minor injuries and are currently being evaluated.

BRONX NEWS: Transit watchdogs urge state, city to fix lousy MTA bus service


As the MTA focuses on fixing the crumbling subway system, a coalition of transit advocates said Tuesday that the plodding bus network needs some road work as well.


To show the transit pros how bad it’s gotten on city streets, the groups collected more than 1,000 stories of bus riders’ missed appointments, angry bosses and unplanned taxi trips.


Members of the Bus Turnaround Coalition, which includes the Straphangers Campaign, published 50 tales of terrible MTA bus trips called “The Woes on the Bus: Frustration and Suffering, All Through the Town.”


The coalition will be delivering copies to the offices of Gov. Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio, as well as to transit agencies.


The toll late buses take can be measured in dollars and aggravation:


Shannon Reid complained her Gateway Mall job is in jeopardy due to the long wait for a Q8 bus near her Brooklyn home. She relies on cabs to get to work on time — even though she has an unlimited Metrocard.


“It has gotten worse over the years,” Reid said, blasting the route as the “worst bus line.”


“I’ve gotten my final warning, about to get fired, waiting for this bus,” the irate commuter wrote.

Transit advocates call on mayoral hopefuls to help fix MTA issues


Another woman said been there, done that.


“I lost my last job because my bus always arrived late,” grumbled Sade G., of Queens.


Edith D. of Queens gave herself a two-hour head start for a 9 a.m. job interview — but a late bus thwarted her.


“The bus was so late that it didn’t even arrive until after my interview was supposed to start,” Edith D. wrote.

Doubts cast on de Blasio plan to tax rich for MTA repair funds


Yet another bus foiled the ambitions in an epic, even legendary way, for aspiring musician Faith L. of Brooklyn


“Once I missed an audition to do background vocals for John Legend,” she groused.


And Maria Z. made a fuss that it took her three hours to get from her Greenpoint home to Williamsburg.


Ramona Ferreryra, member of the grassroots transit group, Riders Alliance, said a slow ride on the Bx19 from her South Bronx home to northern Manhattan can make the difference between seeing a doctor or needing to reschedule appointments.

MTA task force fails to stop fare-beaters on buses


“I have Medicaid. It’s difficult to get in to see some of the specialists that I see,” Ferreryra, 37, said at Columbus Circle. “It’s super-stressful.”


She complained that her ride on the Bx19 through E. 149th St. in the Bronx is constantly held up in traffic, particularly near Lincoln Hospital.


Unlike the MTA-run subways, both Gov. Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio share responsibility for the bus system. Cuomo controls the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, and de Blasio’s Department of Transportation controls the streets.


Though transit officials are trying to improve the bus system to stem the loss of riders, performance has yet to improve. In June, nearly a quarter of buses were late to their next pickup, according to the latest MTA stats — a slight decrease from the same month last year.


The advocacy groups said the MTA can allow all-door boarding on local bus routes, while the city can add bus lanes and tweak street signals to let buses zoom through intersections.


The MTA blamed congested streets for holding up buses.


“Better bus service is directly connected to less-congested New York City streets, strong enforcement of bus-only lanes and expediting new technology like traffic signalization prioritization,” said MTA spokeswoman Amanda Kwan.


Traffic has become another fight between Cuomo and de Blasio over the state of transportation in New York.


Cuomo has embraced a traffic-busting plan called congestion pricing that charges drivers to enter Manhattan’s business core. De Blasio has called it a “regressive” tax, instead preferring a tax on high-earning New Yorkers to fund transit.


“Buses are stuck in traffic and there are a couple of ways to solve that problem. One of the ways is more bus lanes,” said Nick Sifuentes, director of the Tri-State Transportation Campaign. “Reducing traffic on our streets and having congestion pricing in New York … would help in that regard.”


“The most progressive thing we can do,” he added, “is fix transit for the millions of New Yorkers who are on it every single day.”

Nike SF AF-1 Mid ‘For Baltimore’ Releases September 30th



Nike SF AF-1 Mid For Baltimore Release Date

Without Baltimore, the Nike Air Force 1 might have faded out of existence. In 1984, two years after its launch, Nike wasn’t planning to continue production of the shoe, but thanks to Baltimore’s enthusiastic wearers, the AF-1 continued to be made.

Celebrating the spirit of the city, the Nike Special Field Air Force 1 Mid ‘For Baltimore’ pays homage with B’More detailing, a custom-embroidered strap, an ’84 hangtag and comic-inspired insoles. The shoes come in a box illustrated by artist Ed Piskor, who also created a comic book telling the story of the key players who helped keep the Air Force 1 in production.

Nike has partnered with local retailer Downtown Locker Room and Baltimore community organization, Jubilee Arts, on a Baltimore youth arts program that launches in October. A mural by artist Ed Piskor will be featured on the former site of the historic store, Cinderella Shoes, and commemorative plaques will appear at Downtown Locker Room, alongside where Cinderella Shoes and Charley Rudo Sports formerly existed.

Nike SF-AF1 Mid For Baltimore Release Date

The Nike SF AF-1 Mid For Baltimore will release exclusively at Downtown Locker Room in Mondawmin Mall and on Monument Street in Baltimore on September 30th, 2017. More images can be seen by scrolling below.

BRONX NEWS: Woman who killed pregnant pal needed help in surrendering


The ex-boyfriend of a Bronx woman accused of murdering her pregnant pal and carving the baby out of her womb said Tuesday that she frantically called him to confess — and get his help.


Angel Praylow testified in Bronx Supreme Court that then-girlfriend Ashleigh Wade phoned him on Nov. 20, 2015, demanding he come immediately to her apartment.


“She said, ‘I think I killed somebody. I’m scared. I can’t do this by myself,’ ” Praylow recalled. He said during the chaotic phone call, Wade said she had also given birth to their child.


Praylow said he raced to Wade’s home to discover her friend Angelikque Sutton on the ground.

Bronx woman tried to ‘save’ baby after fatal stabbing


“I turn to my left and I just see legs on the floor,” he said. “I broke down crying.”


Praylow also saw a newborn girl, wearing mittens and sucking on a pacifier.


He said that he believed the child — later named Jenasis — was his based on what Wade had previously told him. He recalled wrapping the baby in blankets and taking her outside to wait for cops to arrive.


Wade is accused of repeatedly slashing and stabbing Sutton in the neck and then cutting Jenasis out of her womb.


Praylow testified that Wade — his then-girlfriend of six years — was obsessed with having a baby and told him in March 2015 that she was pregnant with their child and due in November of that year.


He said he was looking forward to having the baby.


“I bought some (baby) shoes, tried to work hard,” he recalled. “I was holding her one night and felt something move on my hand on the stomach.”


Praylow testified that Wade had also claimed to be pregnant in 2013, but she told him the newborn died three days after she gave birth in a Brooklyn hospital.
