"filth on Dean"

This is a sanitation complaint forwarded to me by email (and posted here with permission) from a neighbor.  The complaint is directed toward garbage on Dean Street between 6th and Carlton.  When asked the problem area the resident cited, "the whole damn block."  
According to the resident, street cleaning is either not happening, or ineffective because the vehicles of city employees don't get out of the way of the street cleaners.  
I would add that there are additional problems on the block, particularly the condition of 491, 493, 495 Dean Street.  The sanitation conditions of those buildings, formerly well kept, have declined remarkably under the custodianship of the State and Greenland Forest City Partners.  The sidewalk outside the HPD parking lot is also not maintained by the city and is littered with garbage.
