^I guess people making that complaint somehow didn't notice the epidemic that has swept the country, disrupted the economy, driven down tax revenue, and totally gutted city, state and federal budgets. I envy that ability to live in a worry-free bubble.

The entire situation seems to be getting worse since the first post was made, and we can add a noticeable spike in crime as well. Our local officials are basically useless. Danny Dromm will at least respond and then do nothing, but if you are unfortunate enough to live in Moya's district, good luck to you. He can't be bothered unless it involves some sort of feel good photo op.

Also what’s the deal with the late night explosion fireworks.

Those that aren’t noticing it’s getting worse here aren’t paying attention. Those that are telling those that are complaining about it to become “Leaders” and do something. Give me a break.

Thanks, Captain Flannel.  People in this community are calling for more funding to help re-open schools, more COVID 19 testing, more garbage pick-up, public toilets,  more affordable housing, more this, more that,...I don't disagree with any of it, but marvel at their ability to blithely ignore the crippled financial condition of this city, state and country.

^It's like a little kid not understanding why because one of his parents lost her job, his birthday party had to be scaled down when his brother's held six months earlier was a blow out. How deep a hole in the sand do you have to dig to not notice what's going on (and will probably get worse)?

cycled around Astoria today.  Very clean overall, nice layouts with some actual thought for curbside dinning.  trash cans empty,  little to know litter on ground, no homeless sleeping in any childrens parks. 

Using the pandemic as an excuse for the neighborhood turning into shit is weak sauce.  we have all paid taxes, the city still has money. 

Again, this is weak leadership.  We should not have to live in filth.

I have always picked up the litter in the street outside our building.

DEFINITELY much more trash being left these days. 

The fact there are trash receptacles at the end of the street seems to be irrelevant.

An education program is needed for those who don't care (or know) about public hygiene.

Anyone know where the local leadership is on restaurant re-openings in NYC?  Seems like they are all MIA. Haven't heard a peep out of Daniel Dromm since the start of the pandemic.  I wish they would rally around our local restaurants that are really suffering.

Now Mr. Dromm is stepping up to the plate:

Looks like the local leadership has read your complaints.
