    As 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.

    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.

    The ladders used for an ice rescue have been removed from their correct location and are lying in the pond
  • trash, non working equipment, bathrooms, lights, etc.

    We need to start to be proactive about managing this before summer arrives. The garbage, noise and smoke is an issue for park users.

    Several 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???

    A bunch of graffiti has appeared on the trail between 115th and 116th Streets just below the granite steps.

    There is often very loud music that doesn't seem to correspond with a specific event or concert, but is from a private party that begins early in the morning and goes until late at night (after 9 or 10 pm). Is this allowed? If not, it is very disturbing to residents nearby and needs to be managed.
  • 19 Morningside Ave New York, NY 10025, USA - Morningside Heights
    Bags of trash which have not been cleaned up in weeks in piles on the steps going up to 116th, dead rats and lots of animal feces also.
  • 13 Morningside Ave Manhattan, NY 10026, USA - Morningside Heights
    The summer barbeques are once again destroying the grass and threatening the trees in this area of the park. Coals have been dumped up against at least half of the trees even though signs clearly state that it is killing the trees. If regulations are not enforced (signage is not enough!) in this area of the park then soon there won't be much of a park left - just dirt and withered trees and plants.
