THE BRONX - Some Bronx residents are miffed that Rep. Charles Rangel (D-13) does not have a Bronx office, even though his district shifted to include parts of the borough months ago.

For those living on the outskirts of Rangel's district, a visit to his office on West 125th Street in Harlem takes at least an hour, according to one resident.

The congressman's office says that budget cuts over the last two years is the primary reason he has not moved into a Bronx office space.

"The congressman regrets that under the current budget, we cannot afford to set up a Bronx office," Rangel's office said in a statement. "With sequestration, members have faced an unprecedented management challenge with sharp cuts."

Rangel's district reaches from Harlem to Kingsbridge, to Norwood and Webster avenues.
