We’re not ones to complain too much about Dumbo (gotta take the good with the bad, right?), but we get a steady stream of people who complain to us about things in Dumbo. And sometimes, getting the word out could lead to a better quality of life (e.g. CO at 133 Water, car break-ins, NYPD Skywatch, construction violations, etc.) Below are a sampling of questions/complaints in the past 2 days sent to us or heard on Twitter:
1) Still no tables at Pedro’s
This one is just a photo lament that a reader sent us. Earlier this month, the city revoked outdoor seating at Pedro’s for 120 days.
2) Guma Construction causing too much noise in the morning
“Guma Construction, the wonderful dumpster company on Plymouth St (owned by Joshua Guttman) loves to drop off dumpsters on Bridge St @ close to midnight almost every other day for the construction at the corner of Bridge & Plymouth early in the morning. Other than calling 311, what can we do to stop the noise ordinance violations?”
3) “Dumbo screamer”
Reader epc wonders who is screaming and hooting in the morning between Washington and Main on Water Street. We’ve heard before that it may be a lookout person doing a signal call while another looks for cars to loot, but in the morning, it’s likely the students at the League Treatment Center at 30 Washington Street, no?.
