Here's What an Armory-Turned-Ice Center Would Look Like

As expected, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. and other borough officials gave their endorsement yesterday to an ice center proposal for the Kingsbridge Armory, the Times reports. The proposal was one of two major ones that will be considered by the city's Economic Development Corporation; the other called for a Chelsea Market-style facility. So why support, of all things, a makeover that would bring nine ice rinks to the armory? The developer has promised a living wage for all jobs created by the project?a major sticking point with an earlier, City Council-defeated proposal to turn the armory into a mall. Above, an illustration of the possible Kingsbridge National Ice Center.
