2470-80 Bedford Ave Brooklyn, New YorkAfter neighbors complained about cars parked on sidewalks in front of the auto shop operating at this address, for a short while the shop owner/employees complied with the conditions listed on the C of O (as well as city laws). However, over the past week they have violated their C of O by parking cars on the sidewalk again. We have reported this multiple times via 311, and each time we receive a response that the condition was not observed or been resolved. Please, please don’t allow this business to continue operating in violation of its C of so.

178 Woodruff Avenue New York, New York
I’m writing to report a chronic problem in Woodruff Avenue, Brooklyn NY 11226 (cross Flatbush Avenue and E 21 Street).
A group of people act very annoying day and night: loud talking, drinking in the street, smoking, occasionally fighting, partying with loud music or using fireworks or blocking the street with a Van.
Every time we ask them to speak softer (in the middle of the night), because we cannot sleep, they act very aggressive, threatening us and then often being even more noisy on purpose.
We cannot sleep. That really affects our health, as scientifically proven, but most important, we don’t feel safe.
The group of people is usually casually dressed, they are about 8 people, black, mostly males, one woman. It’s always the same people, plus some homeless.
They spend most of their time, during night, at the “Woodruff Finest Grocery” Store, at 178 Woodruff Avenue, Brooklyn NY 11226.
During the day some of them spends their time also at the "Bubble Land Laundromat" (740 Flatbush Avenue) at the corner between Woodruff Avenue and Flatbush Avenue, next to the Woodruff Finest Grocery Store.
Unfortunately the Police seemed unhelpful so far, despite multiple law violations (loud talking, especially after 11pm, drinking in the streets, smoking, the threats, etc…).
Lately it's getting a little better, but only because of the cold. They still act like they own the block.
I called the 311 Yesterday at 10:23pm. The Police showed up more than 8 hours later... They've been noisy from around 8pm to 3am, I did't sleep at all, and the police showed up the day after, when I was already at work... It doesn't make any sense.
But being too noisy is illegal, especially after 11pm, threatening people is a crime as well as drinking and smoking in the street.
Someone have to do something about that. Urgently.
2470 Bedford Ave Brooklyn, New YorkCars that have been brought for repair to this auto shop are being routinely, repeatedly, and habitually parked on the sidewalk, making it difficult for people with disabilities or carts or strollers to pass through. This happens on the weekends as well.
112-114 East 18th Street Brooklyn New York
My toddler and I were walking northbound on East 18th Street and Tennis Ct at approx. 4pm this afternoon (06/08/2018) when a driver mounted the sidewalk at frightening speed, didn't look left or right as was oblivious that she could have killed two people. Two women also witnessed the near-accident and were similarly outraged.
I went back to check for any signage (pedestrian or driver) and there is nothing to indicate that cars are allowed to enter the sidewalk like this. In addition, parked cars obstruct sight lines making it difficult to see oncoming drivers. Especially ones that don't slow down.
Inside the car park there is a warning sign to reduce speed and give pedestrians the right of way but nothing similarly displayed on the entrance.
This is a case of a seriously incompetent driver but I think a simple thing like the DOT painting the sidewalk yellow to indicate to pedestrians to treat that section differently would help.
600–630 E 18th St New York NY 11226, United StatesAfter a serious accident at this corner, neighbors ask the DOT to install a stop sign at this corner for the safety of motorists and pedestrians.
Newkirk Plaza Brooklyn, New York
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.

910 Caton Avenue brooklyn, New YorkEndless speeding and honking from tractor trailer trucks with 16 or 18 wheels that do not belong on Caton Avenue. From 10pm to 4am they speed and honk as they run the red light at Coney Island Avenue. This is dangerous and also deteriorates the qualify of life on Caton Avenue as it's impossible to sleep in this neighborhood. Nothing has changed! I contact the NYPD and offer video and pictures but they are uninterested and state they haven't witnessed any speeding or trucks on the route illegally. When is more effort going to be made to remove this street from the Truck Route Network?

How should this be handled
