Woodlawn residents tell city to drop street sign

WOODLAWN - Woodlawn residents say a local street sign is confusing and is leading many to wonder if they live in the Bronx or Westchester County.

Residents say a street labeled "McLean Avenue" should actually read "240th Street" because the sign is stationed on the Bronx side of the street and McLean Avenue is a thoroughfare that starts in Yonkers.

"It's very confusing anyway because the border isn't exact around here," says David Koons, who lives in the area. "You can go one block and you are in Westchester or Yonkers, and then go another block and you're in the Bronx."
