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.”
