Food waste and other garbage is littered in the front gardens of 491, 493 and 495 Dean. In some cases the food waste rests on top of rodent bait traps. Rodent holes are clearly visible. People live immediately next door.
These buildings were well maintained until the State and Greenland Forest City Partners took control of them. Some of the food waste appears to be associated with the contractors working on the building.
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.

Details: Rat Sighting
It was Friday morning August 27. I heard a glug glug in the toilet and went to investigate. There was a rat in the toilet bowl. Body was maybe 4-5 inches. I immediately flushed the toilet and he turned around and went down the toilet. Then I flushed it another 4 or 5 times. Then went to google rats in toilets. They also suggested to put dish soap down toilet to get the natural oil off the rat hair so it can't swim well. So I did that too.

2014-09-11 residents continue to ask Barclays please don't smoke by my door, Barclays does NOT permit smoking near or on their property. Even a sign on the door dose not deter staff, contractors or fans from smoking next to residents property.
Litter on this block Pacific St. between 4th & 5th
has quadrupled, the patrons throw bottles and cans
in front yards, tree pits and general garbage cans.
My daughters car had vomit, of chunky hotdogs on the
bumper. Now large bags are garbage are tossed around
for fun and left like this on the street.
What happened to encouraging the patrons to use the
subway at the entrance of Barclay center. What
happened to the vigilant police presence we saw the first month?
A pile of 20 or 30 bags of garbage has been in the satellite uplink parking lot since at least Saturday. The pile is against the wall of the home next door. It is visible from the street through the uncovered entrance on 6th Avenue.
Photos are attached.
