Residents upset over lost parking at Botanical Gardens

THE BRONX - For residents living along Botanical Square South by Webster Avenue and 201st Street, parking will get a lot harder starting tomorrow as the street will be closed for a monthlong construction project.

The road will be off-limits to cars while work crew are building a brand-new parking garage.

The project is expected to be completed in the spring of 2012 and will add 800 parking spaces for attendees at the New York Botanical Gardens and other visitors to the area.

The Botanical Gardens says it is offering reduced prices on parking for affected residents, but many say that is not enough.
