BRONX NEWS: Bronx school where student was stabbed to death to be shut down


The city is closing the troubled Bronx school where a bisexual teen who said he was bullied fatally stabbed a classmate in September.


Education Department officials announced a plan to close the Urban Assembly School for Wildlife Management on Monday morning, along with plans to shutter or merge roughly two dozen other struggling city schools, starting in June.


Education Department officials said the decision to close Wildlife came after failed attempts to turn the school around.


“Following the tragedy that took place in September, DOE leaders have visited the school frequently, including several visits from the Chancellor,” the DOE said in a statement Monday morning.

Student stabbed to death with switchblade at Bronx school


“Despite these additional interventions, there continues to be instability for students and staff, and the Chancellor has determined that Wildlife students will be better served at another school.”


Schools Chancellor Carmen Farina will hold a morning press conference on her plans to close Wildlife and the other schools.


Urban Assembly has been under intense scrutiny since Abel Cedeno, 18, plunged a switchblade into the chest of fellow student Matthew McCree, 15, during their history class. Cedeno also stabbed McCree’s friend.


Cedeno pleaded not guilty to a manslaughter charge in the attack. He said he “snapped” after enduring weeks of anti-gay slurs and other abuse from classmates.

30 students transfer from Bronx high school where teen was killed


Since the stabbing, nearly two dozen parents requested transfers for their children, according to the DOE.


Other disturbing incidents at the school followed the stabbing.


The Daily News reported that school officials failed to notify police after a freshman told administrators that bullies tried to sexually assault him in a boys locker room in October.


Principal Astrid Jacobo was also removed as the school’s head in October.

Converse Chuck Taylor Updated With GORE-TEX and Duck Camo

Few pairs of the Converse Chuck Taylor are more popular than the shoe when outfitted in camo. Dating back to the ’70s edition in camo from 2014 to other general release pairs in the years that would follow, the American footwear brand continues down said path with a budding pair now riddled in GORE-TEX.

The popular waterproof combative has become more customary in recent years. It’s paired here today with a duck camouflage upper joined by masterful tan laces that accent the base to perfection. A rubberized gum sole unit sits below.

Take a closer look at the Converse Chuck Taylor GT “Camo” below and grab them now at select international retailers like Asia’s Billys.

BRONX NEWS: Mother, 3 children killed in Brooklyn house fire


A mother and three of her children were killed in a Brooklyn blaze that ripped through their home and left 10 more injured Monday, officials said.


The family was asleep when the fire erupted in a home on E. 14th St. near Ave S. in Sheepshead Bay around 2:30 a.m., according to FDNY officials.


The 40-year-old woman died alongside her sons, ages 11 and 7, and daughter, 3, during the quick-moving fire, according to cops.


The father and surviving children — one of whom jumped from a window — escaped. Two more boys who were sleeping on the first floor were injured.


The father suffered critical burns.


“Its a terrible tragedy. It just tears your heart out,” FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro said. “These things happen this time of year.”


Nigro said the cause of the fire appears to be accidental.


The surviving children are being questioned to determine what may have happened, he said.


At least five firefighters were injured as the flames spread from the first floor, second and then the attic. At least three were hospitalized with serious injuries, while others suffered minor injuries.


The firefighters suffered injuries ranging from burns, smoke inhalation and a broken pelvis.


The flames left much of the home scorched and firefighters were forced to sort through debris on the first floor and in the attic.


A neighbor, who declined to be identified, said he saw firefighters running into the home within minutes of the 911 call.


“There were big flames shooting out the front of the house,” he said. “Firefighters went straight into the fire.”


He did not see any of the residents.


A woman’s cries could be heard all the way to E. 13th St., where fire investigators could be seen gathered in a blacked room to the back of the home before dawn.


Mourners were ushered out of the home across the street from the fatal fire. Some were in hysterics as they were escorted down the block and into cars waiting for them on Ave. S.


Two men covered the face of a grief-stricken man in the convoy.


In addition to the Brooklyn incident, a blaze broke out in the Bronx late Sunday.


That fire sparked in a home along Simpson St. near Freeman St. in Foxhurst. Three people were sent to a local hospital in serious condition.

A Weekend in Hollywood at Foot Locker’s New LA Flagship Store

Everybody is a star, or so they’ll tell you out in Hollywood. Hustling CDs and dressing up like comic book heroes on the same sidewalk entertainers are immortalized, both the making it and faking it all takes place in LA.

Entering a market as influenced by Kobe as Kendrick, Foot Locker is back in Los Angeles like they never left. Wait, back? Yup, the New York retail titan actually opened its first doors many moons ago in California. While they’ve never truly left — they have an inordinate amount of shops on the Left Coast — their new flagship on Hollywood & Highland is bigger and brighter than them all.

Replacing Timbs with Vans and KP jerseys with KB, the western flagship takes to the climate change from that of its 34th Street shop across from the Garden, playing to local trends while still sporting the striped associates and House of Hoops buildout born in the Big Apple.

A grandeur greeting from local sneakerheads working the shop is met with product picked for the region ranging from Blake Griffin and Lonzo Ball jerseys in the HoH space to the Star Wars x New Era x Stance collection that mirrors the movie that’s causing a line at the cinema across the street.

So, what’s it like to shop there? It’s actually the star treatment like you might expect. Upon entrance, guests are greeted by a round of applause — no joke — with the two story retail space sectioned off quite smoothly.

Perusing through the Nike section which is half House of Hoops/half running, employees are both of the city and of the culture. Attending the grand opening, I meet a manger that un-DS’d his DMP Air Jordan 11s for the event — after over a decade on ice — that’s as geeked to be wearing his old favorites as the kid is in line to cop the “Blue Tint” Yeezys. When scaling the store during the set up and VIP shopping event the night before, I spot employees wearing local favorites like the Black/White Kobe 1s and “Carpe Diem” Kobe 4s. I chop it up with an employee named Austin who’s making his managing debut after a college hoop stint in North Carolina and Nike internship for the Kobe line during the Avar years. Surprisingly, and also impressively, he’s sporting a slept on team take of the LeBron Solider III in home white with red patent accents. The morning of the opening event, the outside launch lounge has guests gaming as they await their turn to purchase Yeezys, wearing everything from Off-White VaporMaxes to Pigalle Ndestrukts.

Passing by the DJ booth, occupied by CSS standout Orange Calderon, the adidas section in backed by a staff laced in everything from NMDs to EQTs. That same section would later be visited by Laker star Brandon Ingram who chops it up with me and the rest of the media about listening to Chicago drill and Meek Mill before games while later posing for pics with purple and gold diehards both young and old.

Looping around the main entrance which features everything from Mitchell & Ness swingman shorts to Thrasher Vans, the second story sees a tall wall decked out in local graffiti, leading the way to a miniature version of Kid’s Foot Locker and the female focused 602 shop. Kid’s can cop Foams just like their folks while ladies of all ages can shop favorites from Rihanna’s FENTY line, Beyonce’s Ivy Park and of course Air Max makeups in the most trending of tones.

While what’s inside Foot Locker’s LA Flagship store is impressive with or without restocks, it’s the surrounding ambience of Hollywood that makes it unique. Whether walking by Marilyn Monroe’s wax museum figure or seeing the likes of Victor Cruz, Chili from TLC, Akon and DMC all in a few block radius (all actual examples in a two and a half day stay), the celebrity scene of the neighborhood is a spectacle people from all over the world literally pay to see.

However, on a block where half the intrigue is trying to decipher whether or not you actually just saw Karruche Tran or if it’s really Tobey Maguire pretending to be Spiderman, there’s no mistaking the people or the product in the new Foot Locker flagship and there certainly aren’t any tourists to the culture wearing referee shirts.

Yup, on a block where everyone’s trying to be somebody and a scene where everyone’s just trying to cop something limited, maybe the big box brand from New York and its striped shirt employees will be the ones offering a fair shot to buy limited product on the Left Coast.
