Dromm Cleans Up Pigeon Droppings

Thanks to funding made possible by Councilmember Daniel Dromm, the Doe Fund, which employs formerly homeless men and women, was recently in Jackson Heights with industrial pressure washers to remove pigeon droppings from the most heavily affected areas along Roosevelt Avenue. The funds were part of a $61,500 allocation to the Doe Fund to clean the area surrounding the 37th Road pedestrian plaza and the 74th Street bus terminal. While the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has neglected its responsibility to clean the pigeon droppings under the elevated train tracks, Dromm continues to work towards finding a longterm solution to the problem and improve the quality of life of Jackson Heights residents.
