Pigeons are not just roosting, but increasingly NESTING on the north side of both northbound and southbound subway platforms DIRECTLY OVER the waiting area, although the problem is FAR worse on the northbound platform.
The pigeon spikes that were put up long ago are in disrepair, the pigeon wire that had been up has for some reason been removed completely, and 'repairs' over the last year involved putting up sturdy NETTING (!) and wooden boards DIRECTLY over the platform that have become enormous pigeon NESTS.
Not surprisingly, the platform is COVERED with feces and has been for MONTHS.
The area was already a problem because of open roosting areas under the overpass (across the tracks from the waiting areas), which have always needed pigeon spikes, but the situation with the nests now over the tracks is now completely out of control.
This is all totally gross, a health hazard, and a falling poop hazard, especially for passengers who are exiting trains.
After months of a worsening condition the MTA has been completely unresponsive other than a letter acknowledging receipt of a complaint months ago (the platforms obviously haven't even been cleaned in months).
Is there another avenue to getting some action taken, and soon?

During the very early morning of Jan. 31, between 2:00 and 3:39, MTA workers plugged in at least one chain saw and began cutting at 5-minutes intervals directly outside my bedroom window and my young sons' window. It went on for an hour and a half. If I had done that, at that time, I would have been arrested and undergone a psychiatric examination. There is no excuse for such inhuman, thoughtless, heartless behavior. We all were exhausted Sunday and Monday. I never was able to do my errands. I am behind on laundry, grocery shopping and other chores. It CANNOT happen ever again.

For about the 10th time in last 2 months I have observed an extremely long tractor trailer vehicle from FDR Laundry doing a pick up or delivery at Caton Park Nursing Home. No traffic can get by. Engine idling. Impossible for emergency vehicle to get thru if necessary. Lately they try to ameliorate the problem by arriving at 4 or 4:30 am but truck noise wakes us up.

A "Cash for Cars" advertisement board was mounted on the pedestrian lamp pole in this intersection. The board is too high to remove without the use of a ladder and was affixed with what looks to be strong adhesive. Please remove this blight.

For the 4 th time in the last month I have observed a huge tractor trailor making a delivery or pick up at the neighboring nursing home parked in the middle of the street blocking all vehicular traffic causing cars to pass by driving on the sidewalk or backing up 1/2 back down the street. Emergency vehicles would not be able to pass. FDR is the name of the delivery service from Hempstead, NY.

I have twice (11/25 [C1-1-1181144344] and 12/8[c1-1-1186200363]) contacted 311 to report an apparently abandoned Red Nissan Pathfinder with Arkansas licenses plates in front of 684 E 19 St,. The vehicle has received at least two tickets for alternate side parking violations. Because of the vehicle's position, the Sanitation Department is unable to properly clean streets resulting in a build up of leaves, etc. , blocking the flow of rainwater leading to a "lake" in front of my driveway. This situation will only become worse when (and if ) the weather gets. The 70 precinct has reportedly checked the status of the vehicle (which now has a flat rear tire on the passenger side) and found no violation. The vehicle had been parked in its current spot for about two weeks before my initial report which means it has now not been moved for well over a month.
