Constant issues with overflowing trash cans in Newkirk Plaza, especially on the West side, with garbage constantly blowing all over the Plaza. Perhaps more garbage cans or more frequent pick-up would solve the problem.

Police car is double parked, obstructing traffic and blocking in legally parked vehicles. (Car is turned off, no lights on and cops are nowhere to be found). When I called 311 they claimed I cannot report illegally parked police cars?!?

This vacant property is a chronic site for overnight dumping. In addition the property owners fail to visit the property on a regular basis to clear dumped items or properly sweep sidewalk and gutter to 18 inches. The construction fence is deteriorating and 4x8 sheet wood panels obstruct the sidewalk at times when they fall off the frame.
Submitted a service request SR# C1-1-1016561251 on 9/24 only to be closed without correction. The box in the image was the basis of complaint and contrary to DSNY has not been cleared.
More item have since collected like the wood furniture and mattress. The image is from today.
SR #1-1-1016546321 (9/24) refers to the fence and was closed by DOB without correction.
To document chronic issue the following SR# refer to this property:
SR# 1-1-948445171 and other throughout 2013 and 2012 which are now unsearchable to me.
The green trash receptacle belonging to the neighboring laundry mat is part of the dumping problem. The area that it creates facilitates litter and garbage dumping along with public urination in broad daylight. Is it even legally placed there on a public sidewalk?

Service vehicles and motorists are often at odds on this stretch of Argyle road, an each will lay on the horn excessively to vent frustrations at the others.
A small sign already exists as in many other neighborhoods indicating that horn blowing is not allowed except for danger. This is routinely ignored not only by private motorists, but by e.g. sanitation department trucks who should be trained to heed city regulations.
Just a few minutes ago a sanitation truck laid on the horn for literally 30 seconds, at 8AM, as the driver impatiently waited for an idling Access-A-Ride truck to move.
As a resident on this block it's impossible to enjoy a quiet morning, even inside my apartment. The problem exists at all times of the day but is particularly bad in the morning as school buses, elderly transit, and sanitation trucks are all active along with morning commuters.
Can anything be done to help this? I don't know if it is an education issue or an enforcement issue but I'm guessing that a positive impact could be made using either or both measure. If nothing else then city employees should be encourage to heed the horn blowing regulation.

There is regularly unbagged garbage and debris at this location on a daily basis. This has been a constant issue for over a year. At this point, there is broken glass, bulk garbage items, food remains, etc littering the area.

Constant horn honking 6am-9am. Much of it is people honking at school buses which is disrespectful it buses themselves notifying parents they are there for pickup. Both are illegal. The horns are nonstop and make it so that people don't pay attention to horns should there actually be an emergency.
Avenue O & Coney Island Avenue Brooklyn, New York
Constant bottle necking at the corner of Avenue O and CIA traveling west bound on Ave O to the other side of CIA. One possible solution is to implement NEW traffic direction and pattern making Ave O one way continuous to Dahill Road. This will alleviate so much congestion, bottle necking and noise pollution as well as air pollution. At the end of Dahill Road, a new traffic light should be placed so motorist do not make the right. More one way streets should be newly patterned so we alleviate all the congestion and pollution we face. We deserve a cleaner environment. I hope you will seriously consider this proposal.

This is a dangerous corner. there is no street light, stop sign or speed bump. This is also a school bus stop and the kids are put in danger having to navigate across this busy street with card speeding by constantly.
