Been going on for months man living in vicinity of Cortelyou and Argyle constantly has cars with for sale signs. Has Massachusetts plates, 1 on each vehicle with matching numbers. He has 2 sets, one plate 821GA7 was on 2 cars today, both parked on Rugby between Cortelyou and Ditmas. The cell phone # 646-549-3934 on car window. Has another set of plates, on of which is on a late model crean Mercedes. Clearly 2 vehicles sharing a license plate can not both be registered and insured.

Dead tree, overgrown and litter strewn tree pit next to John's on Rugby side. The bakery staff dump flour in the oak tree pit a bit further down on Rugby. Can they order a new tree and maintain the sidewalk and tree pits better?

There is such a deluge of bird droppings on the platform at the Cortelyou Road MTA station that people often slip in the slimy goop, especially when it rains. This morning I witnessed a woman slip and then fall into the muck. It's disgusting, a health hazard, and needs to be cleaned.

Despite recent inspections, Catskill Bagels has no Health grade in their window.

There are group of guys who loiter on Argyle outside the Salahi deli. They start in the evening and are there until the early morning. They drink, smoke pot, yell, fight, and urinate on the adjacent properties. They hit people up for money in a threatening manner, and leave their litter and bottles in and around parked cars, on the sidewalk, etc. And, their noise disturbs the people in the building above them.
201-209 Stratford Rd Brooklyn, NY
A few weeks ago workers dug up Stratford Road just south of the intersection with Beverley Road. They filled in the hole but did not repave the road, leaving a trench that's several inches below the rest of the road surface. It is unmarked and difficult to see at night, making it dangerous for cars, motorcyclist and bicycles.
2151 Caton Avenue Brooklyn, NY
Copy of email sent to Mathieu Eugene 1/18/13:
I have been a resident of your district for the past 4 years. I live at 2233 Caton Ave on the corner of Bedford, right around your district office on Linden Blvd.
I am writing to complain about an on-going issue regarding the accumulation of garbage in front of an empty lot located at 2151 Caton Avenue between Flatbush Avenue and Bedford Avenue to the right of a Laundromat located at 2149 Caton Avenue (see 3 photographs attached taken yesterday Thursday January 17, 2013). In spite of numerous complaints filed with the New York Department of Sanitation through 311, the issue invariably reoccurs within days, sometimes hours of removal of the previous batch of garbage by the Department of Sanitation or the Laundromat operators. I have seen local residents discarding anything from fastfood, beds, empty boxes, sofas and any other detritus imaginable. I have seen people urinating, even defecating in that corner. It accumulates until eventually, sometimes after filing 3 or 4 or more complaints with 311, the location is cleaned up, only to be dumped on again within hours. Given that this is before an empty lot, its owner doesn't believe it is obliged to clean the sidewalk. The Laundromat, legitimately so, doesn't think it is obliged to clean the area since it is not before its lot. Meanwhile, local residents use it as a municipal dump. It is ground for highly unsanitary conditions, particularly in the summer, attracts rodents, and reflects poorly on the neighborhood and your district. It is disgusting and no one is being held accountable for it.
I am calling on you to see that this issue is being resolved once and for all. Perhaps the owner of the lot can be found and held accountable for removing the garbage. Perhaps a poster "This is NOT a garbage dump" could be placed on the wooden fence, though I doubt anyone would comply. Perhaps your district could invest in a sidewalk cleanliness campaign to raise awareness of the issue, which is not unfortunately restricted to this corner of Caton Avenue. Whatever the solution may be, I would greatly appreciate that the issue be taken care of. A portion of my tax dollars (city and property taxes) go towards keeping our streets clean.
Thank you for your attention to this matter andI look forward to hearing from you. Best,

street light directly in front of 537 E. 17 St. has been out for several months. I reported it via 311 on two occasions, and it's still out. This end of the block, close to Ditmas Ave. is very dark. In a neighborhood where car break ins have become a constant threat, having a very dark street only helps the thugs.
What does one have to do to have a bulb replaced?
Can't upload an image because there's nothing to see----only darkness.
