NYC Community CleanUp is a city wide initiative to put low level offenders to do meaningful community service work. The Queens office is based out of Long Island City and we are eager to serve our host. Our service is envisioned as a three step process. First we work with the community to identify areas of need. The second part is to send a crew of supervised clients to serve the community. Lastly we will report our results, including posting before and after pictures to www.cleanupnyc.org.

  • Motorgate elevators Acknowledged
    688 Main Street Roosevelt Island, NY - Roosevelt Island

    The elevators on the north end haven't be working for years. There are many people who need to park on that end and require an elevator, especially handicapped. If you are handicapped or have health issues you are forced to try to get a space at the south end which is extremely difficult or park and walk inside the garage which is dangerous to the elevators and then walk back on the sidewalk to the building you are going to. The garage is in such disrepair. The lights in the north stairways are out many nights and there is garbage and debris all over

  • Red Bus Stop At Gristedes/ Motorgate New York, New York - Roosevelt Island

    Next to bench is two broken glass window panes broken by a man in a wheelchair parked there all day. Dangerous for kids and dirty as well. He discards food and garbage as well as feces onto the floor all day. This is a serious health and safety hazard.

    The garbage "cage" used by M&D Deli is a pigsty, with rotting garbage on the ground attracting vermin. It should be cleaned up and maintained.

    The fruit stand needs lights at night. Currently he uses a generator, which creates unnecessary pollution. Could RIOC make an electrical outlet available at the fruit stand location?

  • Sick Trees Acknowledged
    625 Main Street Roosevelt Island, New York - Roosevelt Island

    On the North side of 625 , I have a sick tree outside my window. It is the second tree from the Promenade. As soon as the leaves grow in, they turn brown. This is most evident at the top of the tree. It is getting worse each year. The first tree next to it seems to be having the same problem

  • 2-4 River Rd New York, New York - Roosevelt Island

    There is garbage under the benches on West Rd right near the Day Nursery playground. It has been there for a few days now (forks, beer bottle, junk). RIOC used to have a truck that went by every day to clean up the trash. Why isn't this been done any more? Our island used to be very clean! Please bring back the daily care. Thanks.

    What is supposed to be gardens and something to enjoy has become all weeds and ugly.

    IDEA: let's let some of the freen-thumbed islanders try their hands at planting their individual gardens!

    The walkways in the park near 40RR are always filled with puddles of water. Please improve drainage and level the walkway.

  • 502 Main Street New York, NY - Roosevelt Island

    There is no garbage can in Blackwell Plaza, so people sitting on the benches and soon, children playing in the water fountain, will deposit their trash in the park. There are garbage cans near the Youth Center in 504, across the street at 503 and at the stop sign near the flagpole, but none in the park itself. I spoke with Fernando Martinez and notified him by email several weeks ago. Please put a garbage can there IMMEDIATELY. More people will sit there in the warm weather, leaving their trash.

  • 570 Main St New York, NY - Roosevelt Island

    There is a terrible smell on the street, by the corner of 575 Main st, where I believe the garbage area for the Deli store is.
    This is disgusting, unsanitary and dangerous.
    The smell goes back already for about a week.
    This facility should be inspected and closed if not able to maintain minimum sanitary conditions.
    What's worse, it is just a few feet away from RIOC's office...
