  • 426-438 Degraw Street New York, New York - Boerum Hill
    Parking conditions on Hoyt St. make it impossible to see oncoming traffic when crossing at Degraw Street. Very dangerous with the speeding and number of children and proximity to the school.

  • 7th Avenue Brooklyn, NY 11217 - Park Slope
    Trucks on 7th Avenue have no respect for residents or their environment, leaving their engines on while drivers deliver goods to nearby restaurants and shops. The trucks cause unnecessary pollution, noise and nuisance. If you're parked, turn your noise-making engine OFF!

  • 914 Union St New York, NY 11215 - Park Slope

    Traffic gets constantly backed up along Union Street due to the very short street light on Union Street leading into Grand Army Plaza.

    This traffic backup results in excessive honking from drivers who are stuck in the bottleneck. This really disrupts the peace of an otherwise peaceful and quiet neighborhood block

    Woofs and Whiskers requested a bike rack. There seems to be enough sidewalk space, however there are cracks in sidewalk

  • 59 Douglass St New York, NY 11231 - Boerum Hill
    Construction Fence on the corner of Smith & Douglass (for empty lot @ 59 Douglass St.) blocks half of the sidewalk on both Douglass and Smith st., for about 30 feet. It has been like this for over two years. Often there are nails sticking out and the boards lean outwards over the street. What right does the (nonexistent) Developer have to the sidewalk?

  • 8th St And 8th Ave Brooklyn, NY 11215, USA - Park Slope
    When work was done on 8th St two years ago, the crosswalks were never repainted, creating a danger for pedestrians in an area with several schools.

  • 23 6th Avenue Brooklyn, NY - Prospect Heights
    The sidewalk is uneven and has a hole. It looks like it might collapse eventually if cars continue to park on it.

  • Litter Open
    564-572 Pacific St Brooklyn, NY 11217, USA - Boerum Hill

    Litter covers the sidewalk at the end of each day at the corners of Pacific St. and 4th Ave.

    I've reported this issue via 311, but the report stated that it was not a problem. There is a serious litter/open garbage problem all along 4th Avenue extending south from Pacific St.

    The business owners along that stretch do not clean up the trash either so it ends up blowing around into yards, tree/flower beds, and all over the sidewalk. It's disgusting!

  • 102 5th Ave Brooklyn, NY - Park Slope

    This area has white lines painted showing where the bus stops end and it's ok to park. That's great, but as you drive up to an empty space, 80% of the time it's a fire hydrant. There's no way to tell whether it's a parking spot or a fire hydrant until you've driven past the empty space far enough to see the hydrant, holding up traffic for no reason.

    Instead, when the lines are painted, they should be changed in the 15+15 feet exclusion zone around a fire hydrant, so drivers can clearly see whether it's a parking spot or a fire hydrant before we get to it. Maybe change the line to red in that region, or use hash marks, etc. (I am talking about the line on the street, not the curb. The curb paint is useless when it is not visible behind parked cars.)

    This would also help us know if we're legally far enough away from the hydrant or not, fitting in more cars. This area is hard enough to find parking as it is. Cars won't have to slow down as much, reducing pollution from their exhaust and noise pollution from jerks honking behind them.

    (Ideally, this would be done everywhere that parking is scarce, but we'll start here because there are already lines being painted in this area.)
