Trashy situation under 86th Street El
It really stinks.
The garbage piling up along 86th Street underneath the elevatedtrain, which is under construction, has Bensonhurst residentsseeing red.
Living like this and looking at this is disgraceful and thereis no reason for it, said Catherine Steinberg of the conditions,especially between Bay Parkway and 23rd Avenue. There are loosepapers blowing around, empty cups and bottles – it’s a breedingground for garbage.
Due to track construction and station rehabilitation, thecolumns holding up the elevated track have protective mesh nettingaround them, creating a favorite spot for passerby to throwtrash.
