City: Citrus smell in Bronx not a concern

HIGHBRIDGE - City officials say a citrus smell that has settled over parts of the Bronx is emanating from a nearby natural gas plant.

The city's Department of Emergency Management says the release of natural gas from a utility plant in West Harlem is a routing maintenance procedure.

But many Highbridge residents say the smell is worrisome.

"It scares me because it could be dangerous," says Abraham Bah. "We actually don't know what it's about."
