Many residents have complained about the lack of cleanliness and safety of the MTA-owned property—currently storing construction materials, machines, loose debris, and rusted fences.

In her letter, Pheffer Amato called on the MTA to clean the property, which is not only an eyesore, but poses a safety hazard as a bike path runs through the property. Pheffer Amato stated that when she did a walk-through with Broad Channel Civic Association President Dan Mundy, they both noted first-hand the horrible conditions, including cracked sidewalks and large construction debris.

“We’re only months away from the warmer weather and this property is filled with trash and debris. Our homeowners, local businesses, and bike enthusiasts should not be subjected to this continued disrespect,” said Pheffer Amato. “It’s time the MTA clean this area and be good neighbors to the residents of Broad Channel and Rockaway.” She said their request is simple: “It’s time for some spring cleaning!”

“The Broad Channel Civic Association joins with Assemblywoman Pheffer Amato in calling for the MTA to clean up the mess that they have allowed this parking lot to become,” said Dan Mundy, President of the Broad Channel Civic Association. “Numerous construction trailers litter the area and have expanded into what was once a clean and open parking lot and have made a complete eyesore. The MTA needs to hear the residents’ concerns and respond accordingly.”
