2013-08-14 ESD fails to notify residents of night time total Illumination of LIRR Vanderbilt rail yard

August 15, 2013 - 8:00pm

2013-08-14 ESD fails to notify residents of night time total Illumination of Vanderbilt rail yard
Nothing in any of the previous ESD construction alerts warned residents about the night time use of rail yard lights, previously committed not to be used unless it's emergency work; tonight’s use appears NOT for emergency rail yard work, appears lights are for the delivery of generators for MTV MVA’s. Pictures show how the high pressure/intensity sodium lights illuminate the entire residential building until after 11pm.
