Who's responsible for garbage (and, likely, rats) in and around the Atlantic Yards site? Lots of people/agencies, but someone needs to knock heads

Atlantic Yards Report

A photo essay on Atlantic Yards Watch, headlined Many failures to contain garbage in the vicinity of Atlantic Yards can be seen in photos, shows several potential sources of food for rodents inside and in the vicinity of the Atlantic Yards Project footprint.

Those responsible include residents, visiting workers, Atlantic Yards site overseers, and city agencies.

I reproduce the first few below, but let me add a conclusion: if construction workers and police officers park illegally, thus contributing to the problem, and if the police won't enforce those rules, someone needs to knock heads.

That someone would seem to be the Empire State Development Corporation, which has overall responsibility for the project.
