Bronx native Sanford Garelik dies at 93, NYTimes

Sanford Garelik, a City Council president and former candidate to the Mayor’s office, died on Saturday.

In the 1970s, Garelik became NYPD’s first Jewish chief inspector, the highest uniformed rank at the time. As the economy was worsening, Garelik expressed his concerns about the cost of renovating the Yankee Stadium. Instead he thought the Yankees could join the Mets in their Shea Stadium in Queens and a garment center could be built where the Yankee Stadium now stands.
