Heights residents finally did what the city and Bruce Ratner were unable or unwilling to do: clean up Pacific Street.

After complaining about neglect along the Ratner-controlled railyards, volunteers filled 30 contractor bags with debris at the Sept. 23 event, dubbed “People Still Live Here” day.

City law holds property owners responsible for litter in front of their buildings, but the Department of Sanitation and the Empire State Development Corporation declined to comment on the mess. No wonder activists want ESDC to finally appoint the long-promised construction ombudsman.
