Park Row falls victim to business community

I'm writing to once again talk about issues in the Park Row area. Our streets are in horrible condition, with curbs broken and trash everywhere. The concern for the business community is that employees park in our neighborhood, as we have a 72-hour parking restriction that allows waiters, clerks et cetera to park all day and into the night without paying or being ticketed. The issue is that trash et cetera is never cleaned. I've lived on Park Row for four years now, and not once has the gutter area of the street been swept. The street cleaner does come every other month (on the third Thursday), but when he arrives at 9 a.m., the street is filled with folks working in the Village, and thus the area where trash builds is never cleaned. You can only imagine the items of trash that accumulates – or maybe you can't (i.e., this week, human waste, with towels to wipe it with, was left across the street from my home on the circle on Park Row). I suggest that the business community take a closer look at how the employees affect the neighborhoods of our Village with employee parking, et cetera. How do we get someone to clean the human waste in the street where maybe "visitors" might park? The Park Row area is a victim here. Thanks for listening. Ed Witt, Park Row
