PARK SLOPE - Park Slope residents say the site of a former gas station that was torn down for luxury housing is emitting an unbearable stench.

Residents say the stench, a mix of oil and gas, has seeped into their homes. The state Department of Environmental Conservation says tests at the site in 2003 revealed it was contaminated.

The construction site is located on 4th Avenue between 5th and 6th streets. With temperatures rising, residents say they can smell it all the time.

The DEC says it is still waiting for BP, which owned the gas station, to submit a cleanup plan for the site.
