Argyle Road was resurfaced between Cortelyou and Dorchester months ago. The crosswalk at Argyle and Crotelyou Roads was never repainted. Cars regularly stop for red light and park too close to Cortelyou Rd. not leaving room for pedestrians to cross.

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.

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.
