STATEMENT FROM BOROUGH PRESIDENT DIAZ

“The lawsuit filed by the residents of Diego Beekman Houses is a direct result of this administration’s failure to give true consideration to an alternative site in The Bronx. The Lippmann Commission’s own recommendations make it clear that the Mott Haven tow yard is the wrong site for the proposed jail, as it does not meet the principles of restorative justice. There is a perfectly valid alternative site for the proposed Bronx jail—adjacent to The Bronx Hall of Justice inclusive of the current site of Bronx Family Court—yet the city has blatantly refused to give this location any consideration.

“In the interest of political expediency the administration has chosen the wrong site for its proposed jail, and the residents of the Diego Beekman Houses are justified in seeking legal remedy to the city’s intransigence,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
