Many residents say there's about a million other things they'd rather see in the lot.

THE BRONX - After years of complaining about a trash-covered, abandoned lot to no avail, people living near Yankee Stadium are taking to social media to shame the lot's owner into action.

The lot is located at 840 Gerard Ave. in Concourse Village.

One nearby resident in particular, Steven Harrison, has taken the initiative to clean the lot up. He says he's called and emailed owner Howard Jaffe many times but hasn't gotten results.

Now Harrison has made Twitter and Facebook pages in hopes that more people in the community will get on Jaffe's case.

Jaffe has not yet returned News 12's call for comment.
