THE BRONX - Residents of one Pelham Bay community are worried about a dangerous and busy intersection.

They say the corner of Crosby and Coddington avenues is a major blind spot, and blame poor visibility for accidents and close calls in the area.

In a statement Councilman James Vacca told News 12 that Crosby Avenue often becomes a racetrack, and something needs to be done to  slow the cars down.
