Residents of the Concourse Village housing complex are upset over the loss of parking spaces

Some residents who live in the Concourse Village housing complex are outraged after learning that they are about to lose their parking spots.

Residents tell News 12 they received a letter from management on Friday telling them they must move their cars by Monday.

They say they are unhappy after learning their cars could be towed away if they don’t get their vehicles out of the garage by Monday.

They complain that the letter they received on Friday was sent at short notice and that their needs are not being taken into account.

Residents say they currently pay $40 a month for parking and if they try to go elsewhere they fear they will end up paying hundreds of dollars.

Some older people call this an inconvenience because not having their car nearby is problematic and dangerous. They say they are worried about having to walk long distances at night to park their car.

Finding parking is already a challenge in the South Bronx, so with potentially hundreds of residents now forced to park on the street, they fear it could get even worse.

They are now calling on Concourse Village Management to offer them alternatives.

News 12 has reached out to building management to find out more about the situation and whether they are providing assistance to residents, but has yet to hear back.
