A defunct Gun Hill Road golf driving range near the Hutchinson River Parkway in the northeast Bronx has been abandoned for nearly two decades.The BronxTimes reports that on Wednesday, May 29th, councilman Andy King and a group of protestors from Speak Up for a Better Bronx, expressed their anger that the space, which is controlled by the MTA, is still vacant.

In early 2017, there was a plan to develop a 400,000 square foot shopping center and housing complex called Baychester Square in that area. But the City Council didn’t support the proposal even though Community Board 12 is still in favor of the project.

Some members of Speak Up for The Bronx also would like to see the land turned into a community center, a public park, or even affordable senior housing.
