THE BRONX - Some Allerton residents were shocked to find that a city map reveals many who live on or near Allerton Avenue may technically live in Bronxdale or Laconia.

Residents say they want city officials and Community Board 11 to recognize that they are in Allerton, not the other areas.

Jeremy Warneke, of Community Board 11, is requesting that the Department of City Planning change the district map to define Allerton Avenue as part of Allerton.

Some residents say it doesn't really matter, Allerton Avenue is just another block and it makes no difference where it is.

The Department of City Planning says it's already in the process of changing their online map and data.
