Officials break ground on Edenwald YMCA
Mayor Bill de Blasio, other elected officials and community members broke ground Monday on the first YMCA in the northeast Bronx.
Community activists say they've been pushing since 2009 for a YMCA in the area.
The new center will feature two pools, a full-length basketball court, a gymnasium and community space. It will also create jobs.
The project is expected to be completed in 2020.
