Middle Village being dumped on
I am attaching pics I took this morning....this is on 75th Street in Middle Village. This is the side of the Coliseum Gym at 75-09 71 Avenue Middle Village.
This has been this way for several months....I have called Sanitation Garage in Maspeth....they have not come and issued ticket ...I am assuming because then it would have been cleaned up.
This is a mine field of junk...the snow has melted ...they never shoveled...this side street....I believe its there responsibility, if its their business. I just dont know how they get away with this....they must know someone at Sanitation.
What else can be done...this should definitely in the Hall of Shame....

Shitty asphalt patch job too, thanks NYC. That'll learn those Middle Villagers not to fuck with de Faustio and the Crowleys.
Every neighborhood in Queens is getting dumped on. Laws are being broken left right. I recently saw two bicycles used for deliveries chained to a no parking sign. I also a mountain bike chained to a light pole on the manhattan bound #7 train platform junction blvd station. The bicycle couldn't have belonged to an MTA employee. No one in the right mind would do something like that. Why isn't the city cracking down on these violations??
Re: no parking sign.
It's not illegal to lock a bicycle on a no parking sign, although it would be unwise to do that overnight.
Before there was the installation of bike racks (way long overdue and the only thing the city has done right), the only place to secure bikes are the no parking signs, you need a big long ass chain to tie to the a light pole. In fact, because it's Queens there are still no place to lock up if you need to go to the store or have lunch. Only on Queens Blvd, Austin St. and L.I.C. are the only places where they have bike racks.
Unfortunately, these racks and the poles are being monopolized by these food delivery guys and at times they store spare wheels and frames on them making it impossible to even lock up on it, then you have to resort to the no parking poles.
I can't stand the assholes who lock their bikes on a subway pole too. The owner probably just locked it there to take an available seat, anon.
That patch job will probably get fixed when it warms up, too cold to pour concrete now but I'd call Councilman Holden to get to the bottom of this.
The contractor for the city eFFed up the guys sidewalk, left bad tires removed from the excavator and filled the hole sloppy with tar pebble! And how is this the gym owner fault?
The owner and landlord been calling 311 for months and the city hasn't done shit!! The contractor should be charged with negligence for leaving all that stuff behind
I know somebody who owns a crossfit gym. In addition to standard cardio and weight machines, they also train by lifting, carrying or dragging heavy objects like construction vehicle tires. Those two big tires and the round concrete thing are pieces of gym equipment that should not be blocking city owned sidewalks. This gym owner deserves a ticket for illegal dumping. And as for the unshoveled sidewalk, I can't think of anything more cardio than shoveling snow.
"The contractor for the city eFFed up the guys sidewalk, left bad tires removed from the excavator and filled the hole sloppy with tar pebble! And how is this the gym owner fault?"
Stop with the fake news BS. Those tires and medicine balls(?) have been there for the last 8 years...WAY before the city came and tore up the sidewalk. The coliseum gym has NOT been a great neighbor to those that live in that part of MV. The patrons that frequent the gym park and drive like A-holes too. Go past there at like 5-7 and watch a meathead double park or block the hydrants. Seems they use every muscle in the body at that gym except the one between their ears.
The issue is not the asphalt patch...its the medicine balls and the huge tires.
Why should i have to navigate that every morning....if I had that on side walk in front of my home, I damn sure would have received summonses.
Just because medicine balls and tires have been there for eight years does NOT make it okay!!!
Letters and emails to every politician,local paper,community board and calls to 311. The squeaky wheel.......
Are you serious?!? A coupla tires?!? This looks like any street in Craphurst on a good day. Currently on 43rd Ave between 72nd and 74th there is an enormous couch, several bags of what looks like construction material, a car fender, and assorted trash that fine upstanding persons hurled thereon (eg, Georgi and Viop bottles, used condoms, drug bags-some with white powder still inside). Welcome to life in Queens! And yes, I called 311. You should too, though tackling dumping is truly a Sysiphean task and it is wearing away at my soul :(
I was unnecessarily harsh in my comment yesterday. I am in fact grateful to the Middle Villager who sent QC these photos, for it means that he or she is actually fed up enough to bring it to the public’s attention. The city IS required to haul away dumping- if you are not getting quick removal after calling 311, go to your local politicians and keep calling them until they actually take an interest. The problem with so many Queens neighborhoods is that there is widespread “garbage indifference” (to use Joe M’s apt term). People see crap accumulate around them and think there is nothing they can do, the mindset being: why bother cleaning when crap will just appear again the very next day (hour/minute). So thank you to the people like Crappy and the Middle Villager and all who are refusing to be indifferent any longer.
