Carroll Gardens has been plagued by garbage.
Reporter Raanan Geberer of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle wrote that:
“Trash is everywhere in Carroll Gardens, from litter on the streets to overflowing garbage cans, and people are complaining.”
Some residences in the area are priced in the millions, but with the trash overflow it’s hard to believe.
Katia Kelly, author of the blog Pardon Me for Asking, wrote:
“From candy wrappers to plastic bags to paper cups, trash is everywhere.
“Rats, attracted by the garbage, also plague the neighborhood and have been seen in the local brownstones’ well-known front yards.”
Carroll Gardens ranks 37 out of 69 on DNAinfo.com’s neighbourhood safety list, but if the garbage problem is not remedied, it won’t rank well in terms of cleanliness.
