DUMBO Action Committee started this petition to District 33 Councilman Steven Levin and Brooklyn Community Board 2

WE, the residents and shop owners of DUMBO and Fulton Ferry Landing, request that ALL STREET VENDORS be restricted from our streets. Trucks and carts park illegally; vend illegally; return regularly to spots from which the police evict them, sometimes within minutes. They flaunt the laws on health, environment, traffic, safety and their own permits. 

Trucks’ regular illegal parking next to and even in crosswalks and next to schools creates safety hazards. Their generators’ noise and NO2 (nitrogen dioxide) emissions permeates our homes and businesses.Traffic is snarled with their double parking and filling up metered spots illegally, some 'reserved’ illegally for them. 

We are a residential community in a wonderful location and want for ourselves and for visitors SAFE streets, without constant noise and pollution. These vendors seriously overcharge for their drinks and food creating an impression this is a rip-off neighborhood.

Firstly, we request the enforcement of laws, including escalating penalties for multiple offences; and that the area from Old Fulton Street to Bridge Street from Plymouth Street to York Street become a NO VENDING AREA . This will help the businesses both in Brooklyn Bridge Park and the neighborhood.
