Junkies have turned $35M Bronx development into a shooting gallery

A city-owned parking lot in the South Bronx that was transformed into a $35 million development has become a magnet for junkies who infest its outdoor plaza — and leave behind their used needles.

The corner at 149th Street and Bergen Avenue is being used as an open-air shooting gallery by druggies who brazenly get their fix on the circular cement planters that double as benches.

“It’s disgusting,” said Alan Cantu, 45, while waiting there Wednesday for a bus.

“I mean, they maintain the park in terms of watering the plants and sweeping, but the junkies ruin it. I don’t see why anyone would hang out here if they didn’t have to.”

An employee of Triangle Equities, which redeveloped the site in a deal with the city in 2015, said he carefully picked “dozens” of syringes out of the planters on a daily basis.

“This whole intersection is big with drug addicts, but especially the plaza, here,” the worker said.

In an ironic twist, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. had predicted during a 2013 ground-breaking ceremony that the Triangle Plaza Hub would “provide a shot in the arm to our local economy.”

Triangle Equities said it recently installed high-intensity lights and security cameras to keep people from “misusing this area,” but it “may have to consider no longer allowing public access.”

The spot is stumbling distance from St. Mary’s Park, one of 16 green spaces in the borough officials have targeted for installation of 60 syringe-disposal containers and where The Post on Tuesday photographed two junkies preparing to shoot up under a tree.

Is there only 1 marine battalion chief or are there others that take different shifts?
Only one Unit but with different Chiefs working the chart around the clock.
