Donald Trump’s Golf Course Angering Bronx Residents

Donald Trump’s $97 million golf course development is angering Ferry Point residents who are now dealing with the release of high levels of methane gas, reports the Daily News.

The golf course is being developed over a garbage dump that has been closed since 1963. Methane, produced by decomposing garbage, is being released due to the construction.

The release of methane has been a concern since 2000 when the golf course was first proposed.
