THE BRONX - Subway riders in Norwood say their station is in a state of disrepair.

They say they've had to deal with many problems at the 205th Street station for years, including paint peeling from the pillars and ceiling, water dripping from the ceiling and large patches of mold on the walls.

Olga Rivera, a resident who's lived in the neighborhood for 25 years, says she has called 311 many times but hasn't gotten any help.  She says she's fearful for her health.

News 12 reached out to the MTA and was told it never got any specific complaints from residents.

It says there aren't any immediate plans to repairs the wall or leak because there are many other stations in the city that need more attention.
