Attorney Street Noise Followup

Posted on: June 24th, 2009 at 10:29 am by

Regarding the Attorney Street noise we chronicled on Monday, an anonymous resident there sets the record straight on 91:

We have made 100’s of calls to 311, we have went to community board meeting… AND after an 11 year battle through red tape… it is finally getting cleaned up…

…this lot in question was a blight. Imagine a 100X50 lot that had garbage piled 3 stories high covering 33% of the lot. Huge rats and homless [sic] people living there. The lot was (and may still be) a DUMP for the neighborhood.

Here is som[e] inside info… the owners of 91 Attoreny [sic] are not the ones doing them demo. In fact that old lady who owns is trying every day to stop it. This is just getting cleaned up…FINALLY.

I am sure I speak for 99.9% of the people that live near this lot and or to the parents who drop their kids off at school across the street…THE CITY CLEANING THIS LOT UP IS A GOOD THING. There will be no new delvoplemnt here for years.

End of story.
