In today's @NYDailyNews, @RepJoseSerrano and I lay out the case against a new jail in Mott Haven. There is a better site for a jail in The Bronx. The mayor should halt the land use process and listen to the community.

The site they have chosen in Mott Haven is at least 30 minutes away from the Bronx Hall of Justice by public transportation, with transfers. You can't even make a direct trip between the two. How does this bring court facilities closer together? (3/3)

The best site for a new jail in The Bronx is next to our borough’s criminal courthouse, just like in the other boroughs where they are building new jails. Just like the Lippman Commission says it should be. (2/3)

The de Blasio administration has picked the wrong site to build a new jail in The Bronx, and a small decrease in the height of what they have proposed does not change that fact. (1/3)

The Lipmann Commission says: “Locating modern jail facilities near the criminal courts and closer to families, attorneys, and health and service providers is a chance to create a more humane system for the decades to come.” This is true for other boroughs. Yet not in The Bronx.

The de Blasio administration is proposing to build its new jail in the Bronx far, far away from our criminal court and other courthouse facilities. See below.

I spoke with @News12BX @ESteltzer yesterday about why the mayor's jail plan is wrong for Mott Haven. We have a much better site right for a new jail next to the courthouse. Rikers Island should be closed. We need to do it correctly.

Quoted @Vanessalgibson

As I’m sure you’re aware the site next to the Bronx Hall of Justice is 119,000 square feet and not nearly enough space needed to house a full correctional facility plus amenities. A 50-story building on that site is unacceptable for me and the community I represent. No good. https://twitter.com/rubendiazjr/status/1106247275716796420 …

We have proposed redeveloping the family court site, as well. There's more than enough space. We should close Rikers Island the right way.

Buckle up: Public review process for borough-based jails that will replace Rikers Island is set to begin March 25: https://subscriber.politicopro.com/states/new-york/whiteboard/2019/03/14/public-review-process-for-rikers-replacement-jails-to-begin-march-25-9062464 …

Opposition in The Bronx is not about the height, but the site. The city has chosen the wrong location. There is a much better site for it, next to the criminal court on 161st Street. Doesn't it just make sense to build a new jail adjacent to court? Shouldn't we do this right?

Pizza is VERY serious business in my office.

Last year, we built 4,225 units of subsidized housing in The Bronx. This was part of our best development year of my tenure, which brought $3.48 billion in development dollars to our borough. Read more in my newly released annual development report. http://on.nyc.gov/2Hiju0O

$18.9 billion since 2009, more than 45K housing units during the same period 👇👍

Quoted @nytimes

Congestion pricing in Manhattan moved closer to approval. Mayor Bill de Blasio threw his support behind Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s plan. https://nyti.ms/2Tge0cF 

This plan is encouraging, but the details need to be fleshed out further. I cannot support any congestion pricing plan unless the revenue generated is set aside specifically for New York City Transit and nothing else. The lockbox must be hermetically sealed.

NYC is a place where we celebrate our diversity and inclusivity. The LGBTQ community is unequivocally an essential voice in our City. @revrubendiaz’s sentiments are antagonistic, quarrelsome and wholly unnecessary. He should apologize.
