A group of streets in Howard Beach are being overtaken by people meeting up in the Waldbaum’s parking lot on Cross Bay Boulevard and playing loud music, conducting lewd acts and racing along the corridor.
“This needs to stop,” one resident who identified himself as Neal said.
Neal, who lives near the Waldbaum’s at 156-01 Cross Bay Blvd., said people have been gathering inside the parking lot to prepare for races down the boulevard.
He said the group has overrun his quiet block, which consists primarily of senior citizens.
“I never thought this would’ve happened on my block,” he said. “I would have never moved here if I thought this was going to happen.”
Neal said the people who gather in the parking lot have also taken to littering the nearby streets with garbage, beer bottles and drug paraphernalia.
He also told the story of how one night he saw a female driver sleeping in her car, with her foot on the brake.
Neal has called the cops on the group many times, but claims that someone must have a police scanner because the cars disperse before the authorities arrive.
