THE BRONX - The official office for Sen. Gustavo Rivera has opened and residents say they are glad to have a place to talk to the lawmaker.

The new office is located at 2432 Grand Concourse in the Poe Building. Rivera was the only state senator without a district office. For the past three and a half months, when he hasn't been in Albany, he's been working out of his Kingsbridge apartment or downtown at the state Senate offices near City Hall.

Constituents can drop by or call 718-933-2034 to talk to the senator.
