Brooklyn Jews Fed Up with Overflowing Garbage Bins

Brooklyn residents, many of them Jews, are fed up with overflowing garbage bins, a situation that some people said is the worst in 50 years, New York’s CBS outlet WINS reported.

“We literally have piles and piles of garbage,” City Councilman David Greenfield told the local station.

Marilyn Leiman of Midwood told WINS, “I never saw it such a mess. If you walk down Avenue J, it’s just awful. And the other thing that gets me is a lot of tourists come here. They come to eat in the kosher pizza store. They come from Israel; from Los Angeles. And I’m so ashamed that they come here and see what it looks like.”

    Brooklyn and the rest of New York City has always been a cesspool. Just get used to it.

  2. Alan Kardon says:

    Maybe it is not the tourist who are creating the problem. Maybe the people who live in the community can help clean up the mess they created.

  3. Its nice to see the haters are at their keyboards today. Te=he issue is about businesses being allowed to pile garbage on the street. I know the article doesn't really explain the issue clearly but it didn't stop you guys from insulting and disparaging a large group of people. I understand you hate them but can you please keep your hate locked up in your small heart instead of ruing everyone's day by showing it?
