Transit strike threat has Bronx residents adjusting their shopping plans
The threat of a transit strike during the holiday season has many Bronx residents adjusting their shopping plans.
Some residents say the buses, subways and shops are more crowded than ever as people try to buy presents. But strike or not, residents will have plenty of time to shop after many stores extended their hours for this week.
With a threatened strike less than 48 hours away, 50,000 commuters and shoppers could be affected. A citywide bus and subway strike would be New York's first since an 11-day walkout in 1980.
