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?

There is an abandoned lot filled with several broken down cars, automotive parts, garbage, broken basketball hoops, and more garbage. People are dropping off trash and driving away. This is directly across the street from my house and nothing is being done about it. Rats and mice roam freely and besides being a public health hazard, it's a huge eyesore.

The 'Bishop's Crook" style poles (which the local community raised money to contribute to the installation of) have had posters attached with packing tape.
Which may damage the poles finish when (if they are ever) removed by the business that posted them?

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.

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.

Street sweepers in this neighborhood do not have sanitation trucks following them to dump refuse in as other neighborhoods i.e. Borough park. Thus leaves and other debris are scattered on the roadway because the sweepers are FULL why does this happen here????
