2011-12-02 Rail Yard work for Barclay’s arena further egregious violations of the EIS & NYC Air Quality standards

Vanderbilt Rail Yards behind 718 Atlantic Ave

Rail Yard work for Barclay’s arena violates the EIS & NYC Air Quality standards and ESDC’s & FCR’s continued failure to monitor to ‘prevent’ ongoing quality of life issues including air quality. This has been going on the last few days.
The amount of dust is so choking to the worker using a water hose to water he abandoned that tactic.
