Ridge Ave - From Midvale Ave to School House Lane. This block is all tore up even before all the snow. Now it is 10x worse and with the entrance/exit of Rt 76 right there along with the Falls Bridge. This is one big accident ready to happen

Ali Baba, the limo business is a bad neighbor. Streets Dept. and L&I should cite for blocking the sidewalk with large planters and for routinely parking one m or more vehicles in the driveway protruding completely across the sidewalk blocking pedestrians. In addition, there is an arbor across the sidewalk-is that legal? Photo taken last week.

Drivers routinely ignore "do not turn on red" sign and turn right onto the bridge with a red arrow light on jeopardizing pedestrians and bicyclists who are trying to cross the intersection at Kelly Drive and the bridge. Occasionally a police officer may be standing nearby and no driver is ever stopped for this traffic violation.

As reported by a neighbor- the property is a danger as well as an eyesore:
Since 2006, the jungle has continued to grow uncontrollably. It has gotten so bad that several neighbors have taken matters into their own hands and planted a make-shift garden in front of this house to mask part of this eyesore.
Beyond being a bad neighbor and an eyesore, the situation is dangerous. The front porch is rotted completely through in sections and it is not a matter of will it collapse but when will it collapse. We hope it's not when our Mailman is delivering mail. I spent a day cutting ferns down with a saw because they were too thick to cut with clippers. The ferns had grown over to my property line and were completely blocking the sidewalk. The ones I couldn't reach are almost out to the street level. When train commuters walk up Sunnyside Ave. they need to walk in the street to get past the overgrowth and away from the bees. This creates a dangerous situation because many R6 commuters also drive up Sunnyside Ave, and now you have people walking in the street with cars speeding by.
The front of the propertydoesn't hold a candle to the back of the property. The back yard 3523 Sunnyside Ave poses a health hazard and a safety hazard to the neighboring residents. The yard has been allowed to grow exponentially and encroach on all the neighboring properties. The yard from 3523 is so overgrown it no longer drains and is now full of standing water. We can no longer use our yard (3521) without being attacked by mosquitoes at any time of the day. Particularly strange since my yard is 100% concrete. We have also had several incidents where we've found ticks on ourselves after being in our yard. With Lyme Disease and West Nile Virus being such a concern, do you think I could contact the Health Department since L & I has proven to be yet another dead end?
The trees inn the back of 3523 are well over 50 feet tall and rotted. I have a skylight in my kitchen in an odd location. The previous owners disclosed that they installed the skylight only after one of the trees from the back yard of 3523 rotted and fell through the kitchen roof. If one of these giant trees falls, it will likely damage or destroy several of the neighboring properties. You can easily see the magnitude of this problem by viewing an aerial image of 3523 from Google earth or Bing, I live in constant fear that one of these giant dying trees will fall on my house; or, his house will set the forest behind his home on fire since the kitchens are located in the rear of our homes and the overgrowth is growing right up into the exterior of his kitchen wall, and has now overtaken the roof as well.

This is a rampant problem in this neighborhood. There is at least 1 theft from a vehicle per week (I get an email notification with police reports in the area). I myself was a victim and the police do absolutely nothing about it. They didn't even come out, they just take the report over the phone. Something needs to be done. Maybe a community watch? Or just enough people making noise to get something done!
