Broken tree limb a hazard for University Heights pedestrians

THE BRONX - A broken tree limb from this year's October snowstorm is still causing problems for some University Heights residents.

Pedestrians who use a popular shortcut in University Woods Park between Sedgwick and Cedar avenues say that the snapped limb hangs over the busy walkway. They're worried that with winter coming, it will completely break and fall on top of someone.

The city's Department of Parks and Recreation says it has inspected the tree and plans to remove it soon.
