Mayor’s Office: Bed Stuy’s Streets Among Dirtiest in New York City


“Bed Stuy’s a pigsty,” declared DNAinfo, based on the latest report from the mayor’s office. Borough Park, Midwood, Kensington, and parts of Crown Heights and Flatbush weren’t much better, according to the report. In contrast, the Bronx, Queens, and the Upper East Side were sparkling clean.

In Community Board 83, which includes Stuyvesant Heights, only 85.1 percent of the streets were deemed “acceptable.”

Really? We live in Bed Stuy and the streets look pretty good to us, especially in Stuy Heights. Bed Stuy is a huge area, and includes busy areas such as Fulton Street and Nostrand, above, but seems clean compared to the rat- and litter-covered Upper East Side. Maybe the marks are some kind of temporary aberration: Bed Stuy scored 92.8 percent in the early part of the year.

What parts of Brooklyn do you think need cleaning up?
