Meeting about the Dead End

Screen Shot 2015-04-13 at 10.32.30 PM
Neighbors Joanna and Cynthia are hosting a meeting for anyone interested in improving the dead end area: 8:30 pm on May 11th in B3.

Dead End

We’ve written about the trash and disrepair in the dead end before; here’s a photo I took back in 2011:IMAG0396
Not a very nice place to walk your dog, let your kids watch the trains, or make a phone call!

If you’re interested in seeing that area cleaned up, getting the MTA to take responsibility for repaving, and stopping the dumping and parking on the sidewalk, then join neighbor Cynthia in making a “sidewalk condition complaint” to 311. You can call or make a complaint online. Here are some of the details Cynthia included:

to have the deadend repaved and anti parking posts installed. I spoke of how this area was a hazard to children who often go there to watch the trains. How people park on the sidewalk, dump, break bottles and urinate due to poor lighting and no barriers.
