THE BRONX - Several Bronx neighbors are fuming over the parking situation in their area.

Natural gas work has closed parking spaces around East 180th Street and Ryer Avenue - a neighborhood where residents say parking is already scarce.

Even under normal conditions, only police are authorized to park along a stretch of the road. With the ongoing construction, residents say parking is a nightmare.

The residents sent a petition to state Assemblyman Victor Pichardo and to the NYPD's 46th Precinct asking for a resolution.

Con Edison says it is replacing the neighborhood's gas system and that the work should be completed by the end of the month.
