For the time being, residents of Collegetown will have to tolerate walking among overflowing mounds of styrofoam and rotting food. The Collegetown Neighborhood Council was unable to reach a decision yesterday during a follow-up meeting to discuss viable solutions to the mounting problems tied to high levels of garbage in Collegetown.
“I walk through Collegetown everyday and I see vomit on the sidewalk,” said Donna Fleming, president of the Bryant Park Civic Association. “I want it to be a more family friendly neighborhood.”
“These problems in Collegetown are not new, and they will probably never disappear,” said Mary Tomlan, co-chair of the CNC. “But we can take some steps towards improving the ambiance of Collegetown.”
