BROOKLYN - A new report released by the Center of Urban Future has revealed some surprising statistics about the commuting habits of New Yorkers.

The report says that nearly half of Brooklyn residents don't leave the borough for work, and that number is on the rise. The study revealed that from 2000 to 2014, the number of people staying in Brooklyn for employment shot up 37 percent.

Brooklyn residents say they feel the number is rising because of the convenience of not leaving the borough and the boom in job opportunities across the borough.

The study also gave recommendations on how to improve the city's commuting habits, which include modernizing the MTA's signal system and introducing tolls on the East River bridges.

The group is seeking an injunction that would require the Parks Office to remove the cats.
