Homeowners in Throgs Neck want action to stop community disruptionsPosted: Updated:
Throgs Neck residents are frustrated at people who are allegedly damaging their neighborhood.
Earnest Nargi, who lives on Pennyfield Avenue, says the area is popular because there are views of bridges and the New York City skyline. He says people who don't live in the neighborhood cause major problems such as pollution, drug use, public urination, loud music and having cars extend out into active traffic lanes.
"I've seen nearly a dozen head-on collisions and pedestrians are in jeopardy here....because they have to come out behind these parked and sometimes double-parked vehicles," Nargi said.
He says he wants the 45th Precinct to work harder on controlling the area.
"We have shared the concerns brought to our office with the 45th Precinct, the NYC Department of Transportation and Community Board 10," said state Sen. Alessandria Biaggi. "The 45th Precinct advised that they will continue to ticket and the DOT said that they would look into marking off the no-standing zone with delineators."
