Stores near Yankee Stadium fed up with barricades during games

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.
