This photo was taken earlier today by a BxNN reader on Jerome Avenue near the 4-Train station on Mosholu Parkway. Apparently, it's been like this for a few days now.
So who is responsible for this mess of the moment? Technically speaking, homeowners and landlords are responsible for the sidewalks in front of their property, but the Sanitation Department's list of rules and regulations is unclear about who is responsible on sidewalks where there are no businesses. I would guess that in this case, where the trash is near an MTA-owned train station, it's their responsibility.
We're waiting for word from Sanitation about this, but if anyone knows the deal, fill us in.
