BROOKLYN - Marine Park residents say they're tired of living near filth and are calling on city officials to step up sanitation services in the neighborhood.

The residents say they are overwhelmed by overflowing trash and graffiti. They say vacant lots have turned into dumping grounds and subway overpasses have become symbols of blight.

The Madison Marine Homecrest Civic Association has been working to get the Department of Sanitation, Department of Transportation, Department of Buildings and the MTA to pay more attention to the neighborhood.  

Association President Ed Jaworski says the excess trash is creating safety hazards in the area.
