Neutrality?[edit]

I am going to have to dispute the neutrality of this article, especially with respect to the statement near the end:

"This move will bring 650 workers from the market's former location into the area, with an additional 3000 diesel truck trips through Hunts Point bringing the weekly total to 60,000 and ensuring that the area's asthma rates remain the highest in the nation for decades to come."

I would definitely love to ask that the author provide sources for this apparent assumption.

Included a tag for neutrality and factual accuracy dispute above the section Radiooperator 15:09, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Radiooperator is welcome to take a look at the three references now linked within the article including: interviews with the market's fish mongers, NY Metropolitan Transportation Council trucking stats for that market, and a NYTimes article linking truck exhaust in the area to high asthma rates. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Givechase (talkcontribs) 16:18, 5 February 2007

Is it so shocking such a poor neighborhood has a high rate of incarceration? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.199.69.53 (talk) 04:54, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Article being repeatedly edited by paid publicity person[edit]

  • James Chase/believe me/Givechase, actually I now see from Googling you that you are the Communications Director for Sustainable South Bronx.Although I do not believe it is absolutely forbidden for you to edit articles like the one on your organization or its employees, it is HIGHLY DISCOURAGED by Wikipedia policy and your contributions should strive to be beyond reproach. I do not think blanking the page is appropriate for a publicist employed by a related organization.Drawn Some (talk) 10:45, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
