1-11 Morningside Ave New York, NY 10026, USA - Morningside HeightsAs the summer season draws near, my neighbors and I will be bombarded with fumes from the barbecuing in the narrowest area of the park. In the height of last summer, my apartment was filled with smoke. I urge the parks dept to move the barbecuing to an area of the park that is wider and has less of an environmental impact to residents living closest to the park.
7th Ave & 115th St New York, NY - HarlemMy wife and I were riding north on 7th Avenue, in the left lane in preparation for a left turn on 116th St. A police car came up behind us and announced through the loudspeaker, "Get in the bike lane. Ride in the bike lane, not the traffic lanes." I signaled a left turn and the officer seemed to get it. He may have also noticed the numerous vehicles (including a police car) parked in the bike lane. Clearly the NYPD still does not understand NYC traffic laws.

The ice cream truck blares its jingle non-stop for hours on end, including when it is parked.
This is illegal and should be stopped. No other business blares its advertisements over the neighborhood!
The truck's information:
License plate: 82921 JZ / New York
Call 311 next time he's out there for hours!
16 Morningside Ave new York, NY - Morningside HeightsToday beginning at around 6 PM, a group of a dozen or so older adolescents began riding motor bikes up and down Morningside Avenue between 123rd Street and 116th Street. They did not wear helmets, they had no license plates. They rode at very, very high speeds, did "wheelies," and one of them rode on the sidewalk at several points. They disturbed everyone around with their noise and prevented people from enjoying the park. The police were not in evidence for reasons that I do not understand. This went on for around forty-five minutes.

Park Barbecuing is ruining Morningside Park, namely:
· Hot coals being discarded next to trees
· Massive increase in garbage and debris
· Not enough instructional signs or enforcement of rules
· Impact to eco-system of pond by garbage, coals and debris
· Health issue being posed by rodents feeding on discarded food and garbage.
18 Morningside Ave New York, NY 10026, USA - Morningside HeightsThis morning I was walking in the park, and I realize how durty the park was with all the trash spread all over the ground! It's a shame that people don't have more respect to the enviromnent where we are living!
Why are we allowing barbecuing knowing it will destroy the park and increase its budget to hire the personal to clean after. Will it be more intellignet to spend this money on re-planting where it needs?
But more importantly, I saw this morning empty bottles of liquor and plenty of empty cans of beers. I thought alchool was forbitten in the park? Why don't we re-inforce the rules in this park? I see police car and park official drinving by but none of them are saying anything. What's wrong with it? Are we in a no men law area? Last night i came back at 10:30pm at home, and there were right front of our building a group of barbercue lovers enjoying the evening with their music at lound. Again I though the park was closing after 10:00pm and also I though the loud speakers were forebiden.
I'm wondering what's coming next?

34 Morningside Ave Manhattan, NY 10026, USA - Morningside HeightsSeveral park employees spent over an hour standing in the restroom/swing set area yelling at each other and venting about other things. Not only was it highly unprofessional, they also wasted copious amounts of time, and were quite disruptive of the peace and quiet of the area. Are they getting paid???

Morningside Ave And 116th New York, NY - Morningside HeightsThere have been several shootings in the early evening at Morningside Park. One June 3rd at 118th and another June 30th at 116th across from the playground. My daughter was playing on the swings June 30th when a teen pulled a gun and fired at another teen three times. Thankfully no child in the crowded playground was hit, but who knows what might happen next time. Please call your state assemblyman Robert Rodriguez at 212-828-3953, Inez Dicken’s (city council member #9) 212-678-4505, or any other local leaders to voice your concern over the increased violence.
