THE BRONX - Business owners along East 161st Street say they are fed up with police barricades that go up every time there is a Yankees home game, which they claim is hurting their bottom line.

Police say the barricades are placed for pedestrians' safety and to allow a greater flow of foot traffic before and after the game.

Business owners say the barricades are keeping their real customers away, costing them hundreds of dollars in lost revenue.
