Bronx Borough President Vanessa Gibson will be hosting a public hearing Tuesday on the city's plan to build four new Metro-North stations.
The new stations will connect the East Bronx directly to Penn Station. The four new stations are planned to be built at Hunts Point, Parkchester/Van Nest, Morris Park and Co-op City.
Real estate agent Manny Pantiga says the impact of these Metro North stations is already being felt in the housing market - he says that the market in the Bronx has gone up significantly due to the buzz around the new stations.
Pantiga showed News 12 a property on Van Nest Avenue going for almost $1 million that he says was going just for around $400,000 not too long ago.
Camilla Teplus, executive director of the Morris Park Business Improvement District, says that while the BID is excited about the new potential station and the opportunities, there is one concern.
"We need to make sure we're on top of the up keep and have people cleaning it up," said Teplus.
City planning officials estimate service will start in 2027.
The public hearing will be at 10 a.m. at Bronx Borough Hall. Those interested can also join virtually. Click here to learn more.
