La Terraza Now Accepting Applications

Melrose continues to rise as more luxury units come online and new developments are completed.  Originally slated to be cooperative apartments but converted to rentals before construction due to the tanking economy, La Terraza , located at Third Avenue and East 158th Street, is now accepting applications for its 84 rental units.

The units will feature hardwood floors, energy star appliances and even outdoor terraces (thus the Spanish name of La Terraza - The Terrace). Of the 84 units, only 3 will be for low-income families and the remainder 81 units will be for middle income households.  Apartment size range from studio units to three bedroom apartments.

Latinos Make Up The Majority In The Bronx

According to census data released yesterday and analyzed by the New York Times, the Bronx is now officially predominately a Latino Borough.  Quite a transition for what once was the most "Jewish borough" of New York City with over 65% of the population identifying as Jewish.
Is it a coincidence that on the same day that the data was announced that Bronx News12 launched a Spanish news service in the Bronx?
