MASPETH, NY (PIX11) -- In Maspeth, city streets have been converted into a dumping ground of crashed cars.
On 59th street and Flushing Avenue, Tony Nunziato, a self-described Maspeth activist, says he’s fed up with an auto-body shop leaving busted up cars on the street.
Worse than just being an eyesore, Nunziato says that the broken-down vehicles are taking up parking spaces that the neighborhood could otherwise use.
"It’s the Wild West out here for garbage and wrecked cars. Why isn't the city doing something about this?" complained Nunziato who has called 311 for months.
Repeated attempts by PIX11 News, to speak with the owners of American Collision were denied.
A Department of Sanitation spokesperson confirms he spoke with the owner of American Collision and will be monitoring the situation closely.
