Congregants of a Bronx church want a bus stop changed
Parishioners of the Morris Park Seventh Day Adventist Church have asked the department of transportation to make changes to the bus stop located in front of the church.
A church spokesperson, Lydia Morales, says people leave trash in front of the church as well as in the yard and members of the church are forced to clean it up. Morales also says members are also concerned for the safety of the elderly and children going in and out of the church. Members say the buses make it difficult to get inside safely.
The Morris Park Seventh Day Adventist Church has been serving the Bronx for 25 years. According to parishioners, they have been trying to get the bus stop removed for more than a decade.
A spokesperson from the department of transportation said they are giving the request to engineers and will look into moving the bus stop.
