2–10 Coles St Jersey City 07302, United States
There are two adjacent and connected vacant (but privately owned) lots on the northeast corner of Christopher Columbus. Because the owner does not make any effort to maintain the area or surrounding sidewalk, litter, trash, and debris on the surrounding sidewalks have been a persistent problem for the last two years. Recently, however, a terrible smell has begun to hang over the and spreads throughout the surrounding blocks. My best description is that it smells like raw sewage that’s been baking in the sun. I do not know the cause. Can it please be investigated? And can either the owner or the city do more to maintain the sidewalks? I live next door and have twice seen roaches in my otherwise clean building in the last 4 weeks.
