Bruckner Expressway no longer an eyesore in the South Bronx

The mayor's quality of life initiatives led to the cleaning up of the Bruckner Expressway.

One year ago, driving along the Bruckner was an ugly mess. Residents complained about the garbage that was being dumped along the side of the road. Now, the Bruckner is all cleaned up and no longer an eyesore.

Residents had feared that it would only be a matter of time before the garbage began piling up again, but so far that has not happened.

A spokesperson from the mayor's office says more clean up efforts are expected in the Bronx.
