By Michael Gartland July 21, 2016 | 11:49pm Teenage inmates will be transferred from Rikers Island to a South Bronx lock-up under a new initiative unveiled Thursday by Mayor de Blasio. The city will spend about $300 million to move about 200 16- and 17-year-olds from the city’s sprawling jail facility to the Horizon Juvenile Center — a move that could take four years. The plan comes a year after the Justice Department called on the city to find alternative sites for juveniles. “It’s not too late to get on the right path — and we need to provide the right environment to help that happen,” de Blasio said.
