This unsecured and perpetually problematic vacant lot has been taken over by a group who has begun using it as a rehearsal space for steel-pans. It is not known if the property owners have given permission to the group to use the lot. As of this morning the lot now has one truck, two cars, tents, porta-johns, iron structures.
A noise compliant was filed last night about the music and noise: Service Request #: C1-1-1145963181
Date Submitted: 08/27/15 9:34:10 PM
The surrounding neighbors would like to know if all permits and permissions are in place. The porta-johns and their maintainnance as well as the late night noise are of deep concern.

On the fence of decommissioned PS 90 are large posters/banners promoting music concerts and businesses.
As per DSNY rules §10-119, §10-121(a-e, g) these posting are illegal.
This is a chronic problem that has escalated over the past 9 months. Have file a previous complaint with DSNY which was cured but similar posters have since returned over time.
Please assist in not only removing the banners currently hung but in enhancing enforcement to improve the chronic situation. Thank you.
Thanks! Thanked!179 Stanton Street New York, New York

Pigeons are not just roosting, but increasingly NESTING on the north side of both northbound and southbound subway platforms DIRECTLY OVER the waiting area, although the problem is FAR worse on the northbound platform.
The pigeon spikes that were put up long ago are in disrepair, the pigeon wire that had been up has for some reason been removed completely, and 'repairs' over the last year involved putting up sturdy NETTING (!) and wooden boards DIRECTLY over the platform that have become enormous pigeon NESTS.
Not surprisingly, the platform is COVERED with feces and has been for MONTHS.
The area was already a problem because of open roosting areas under the overpass (across the tracks from the waiting areas), which have always needed pigeon spikes, but the situation with the nests now over the tracks is now completely out of control.
This is all totally gross, a health hazard, and a falling poop hazard, especially for passengers who are exiting trains.
After months of a worsening condition the MTA has been completely unresponsive other than a letter acknowledging receipt of a complaint months ago (the platforms obviously haven't even been cleaned in months).
Is there another avenue to getting some action taken, and soon?
(Photo below shows netting, now covered in feces, where pigeons are nesting over the northbound platform)
