Residents of the Fort Schuyler Houses senior center no longer have to deal with an eyesore, thanks to State Senator Jeff Klein.
During a visit to the center on Monday, July 12th, Klein heard repeatedly from residents that an abandoned lot across from the center was being used as an illegal dumping zone. Garbage had been piling up continually and large objects like furniture were also being left at the site during the past several months.
Immediately following the visit, Klein’s office reached out to the NYC Department of Transportation to see whether they could clean up the site. Within days of Klein's visit to the center, the Transportation Department had fully cleared the site of all trash and debris, to the delight of Fort Schuyler residents.
