Newkirk Plaza New York, New York
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?

2274 Church Avenue Brooklyn/ Kings, NYOn the fence of decommissioned PS 90 are large posters/banners promoting music concerts and businesses.
As per DSNY rules §10-119, §10-121(a-e, g) these posting are illegal.
This is a chronic problem that has escalated over the past 9 months. Have file a previous complaint with DSNY which was cured but similar posters have since returned over time.
Please assist in not only removing the banners currently hung but in enhancing enforcement to improve the chronic situation. Thank you.

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.

485 Argyle Road Brooklyn, New YorkThe city just installed the newer street lights on my block. While the light directly underneath the light is very bright (too bright), it causes large, dark shadows from the trees. Additionally, the street overall is darker, more dangerous walking home at night. The old, yellow lights did a better job lighting up the entire street and sidewalk. Can you investigate?
1043 Coney Island Avenue Brooklyn, New YorkThe garbage can next to the B8 bus stop on Coney and Foster is always overflowing with household garbage. There is no need for a garbage can here or anywhere nearby. The corner was cleaner when there was no can.

This causes a dangerous mix of backed up traffic and drivers trying to maneuver around these hazards. This is an ongoing issue that causes problems for drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians.
