It's beautiful living along the Hudson River in Edgewater Harbor, across from Manhattan but it also has its downfalls. Places like Pier 115 Bar & Grill make it impossible for hard-working professionals to sleep, as loud club music makes it way into our homes late at night and until early in the am (Thursday - Sundays). Shopping carts from Home Goods and CVS cause an obstruction for walking on sidewalks or block parking spots for patrons. Crossing River Road to get to cool eateries like Porto by Antonio or to buy fresh flowers at Beethoven's Veranda are quite dangerous! Watch for those turning vehicles, while your crosswalk signal is on! Irresponsible pet owners leave messes on the sidewalks for others to have to walk on. The Superfund Site is causing havoc on air quality for local residents and area employees. And I understand, that the air quality testers have been since removed from the site? The desolate property in between the Superfund Site and our homes is sited with asbestos and mold - what does this mean for our children and families to have to breathe in this unhealthy air? Have you ever walked along the boardwalk? There is debris on the outskirts of the river; full of tires, trash, litter and more!

All of this combined, seems it's time for change. Let's cleanup Edgewater Harbor! Let's hold local businesses and building owners accountable to standards that allow residents to have a quality of life.

  • From forcing Home Goods and CVS to better manage their shopping carts.
  • To Pier 115 controlling the music, so that is does not reach resident's homes; especially at late hours. How many summons need to be issued before something else can be done? 
  • To Pembroke Management holding pet owners and dog walkers responsible for cleaning up after their pets. Perhaps signage with fine notices? Their dog park is also unlocked, so non-residents can use it. Does this make it a public dog park, which should be up to par with code and regulations? You can smell urine as far as the pool and boardwalk. Speaking of dogs at this property, they have a list of breeds that are not allowed and are violating this - is there anything that can be done about that? Do all of these dog owners have permits for their dogs?
  • To stop vehicles from parking in the fire lanes in the roundabout. Perhaps having police make regular stops for this very violation? 
  • To Dunkin Donuts from blocking the sidewalk with their outside tables and chairs. I would imagine they should only be able to utilize a certain portion of the sidewalks, so there is ample room to pass. 
  • To limit cigarette butt and litter pollution on the main streets. Perhaps a sign for littering with fine notices?
  • To ensuring that the EPA is properly monitoring the cleanup of the Superfund site. And shouldn't they be involved with the tear down of the asbestos and mold ridden property next door? 

These are some examples and together we may identify more; that may greatly improve the environment and habitable conditions for Edgewater residents. Join our cause for a better Edgewater Harbor today!
