THE BRONX - Tenants of a Bronx Park East apartment building say their pothole-riddled street is costing them hundreds of dollars in vehicle repairs.

Adee Towers tenant Ernesto Journing says it cost him $200 to fix his vehicle after its axle was twisted while driving down the street.

Other tenants say they are also concerned about a deteriorating stone wall outside the building.

Residents say they have tried numerous times to contact 311 about the potholes and crumbling wall, but nothing has been done.

News 12 reached out to the Department of Transportation for comment, but has not yet heard back.
