PELHAM BAY - City Councilmember Jimmy Vacca unveiled seven new security cameras at a Bronx NYCHA complex today.

Seniors at the Middletown Plaza City Housing Authority Complex said that a superintendent is not onsite 24 hours a day, which made them feel less safe. The seniors-only complex is not considered a high-crime area, but residents had been asking for the cameras for years in an effort to shore up security.

The seven cameras in the area cost $175,000.

Two other NYCHA complexes in Vacca’s district are without security cameras. He says he has allocated more than $4 million over the next three years to put cameras inside buildings at the Pelham Bay and Throgs Neck houses.
