THE BRONX - Some residents in Riverdale are actually fighting to get rid of a security measure in their neighborhood.

Neighbors and tenants of the Netherland Gardens housing complex say that a locked gate installed last year has become more of a barrier than a deterrent, blocking access to a popular shortcut to a nearby shopping mall.

Only Netherland Gardens residents have fob keys to get through the gate, and many of them say they could do without it.

New 12 reached out to management at the complex, but they had no comment.
