More stories of rats in the area of arena construction come forward; Community continues to believe the source of rodent infestation is project construction

Since the Atlantic Yards District Service Cabinet several weeks ago, more complaints about rodents have reached this site, been voiced at the monthly Dean Street block association meeting and posted on Atlantic Yards Report.  Rodents have been an ongoing problem in the area since work on Atlantic Yards began in 2007.

On Friday Atlantic Yard Report published photographs and complaints from Dean Street resident Larry Schwartz.  His complaints about rodent infestation near the Dean and Carlton Avenue intersection parallel concerns filed in incident reports and comments earlier in the week on this site.

On Monday the 23rd, a resident of 6th Avenue between Dean and Bergen Streets attended the monthly meeting of Dean Street Block Association and regaled those in attendance with stories of rats attempting to chew through an exterior door and expressed anxiety about walking home alone after dark due to the infestation.  This area is only a few feet from arena excavation.

Three weeks ago, this website located the rodent infestation primarily on Dean Street at 6th Avenue.  With further input from area residents, we now locate the area with current problems to 6th Avenue from Bergen to Dean Street, Dean Street from 6th Avenue to Carlton, and Carlton between Dean and Bergen.

Ma2 2 2007 This evening, we lodged a complaint with the specialized 311 unit of the DEP for excessive smoke coming from the FCR construction site; the air quality was so poor that everyone in our household between the hours of 10 am - 6 pm experienced uncontrolled sneezing and scratchy throats. Most alarming was the fact that our 16 month old was wheezing for 90 minutes due to the pollution. Complaint # 1604857 --
