Ivy City inequity?

A judicial fact-finding mission turned into something of a media circus in Ivy City on Monday. Superior Court Judge Judith Macaluso, tasked with resolving a lawsuit filed by neighborhood residents alleging legal failures in the city’s plan to locate a charter bus corral on the Crummell School grounds there, visited the environs in question. She was met with cameras and residents angry about the inequities of plopping another industrial facility in their largely industrial neighborhood. Better, the residents say, to renovate the historic but decrepit school as a job training center.
