Bronx residents not taking advantage of heating center
Those sub-below temperatures may be behind us for now, but it's still cold outside, and many Bronx residents are still doing their best to cope.
So for those without heat, the city has opened up warming centers, one in every borough. The Bronx location is at Adelai Stevenson High School in Harding Park. But when News 12 The Bronx visited the center Saturday morning, there was no one around except the Red Cross volunteers.
Red Cross volunteer Jim Austrian, says nobody is around because of the warmer temperatures. Austrian says at 20 and 30 degrees, people can cope.
The centers will stay open until the city's Office of Emergency Management decides it's time to close. But if turnout remains low the centers may close early.
