Cornerstone's Disgusting Dumpster On The Street
A reader sent in some pics of Cornerstone Shelter's (run by Jesus People USA) infamous dumpster compactor on Clifton (between Broadway and Wilson), that is somehow allowed to be on the sidewalk and near playing children. These photos show the disgusting, rat-breeding condition that this dumpster is often in. Clifton seems to be a free-for-all for dumpster activity that would be illegal anywhere else BUT here. There are several dumpsters further south on Clifton that are on the sidewalk as well. The Silvia Center is also on this street. That's the organization that is not supposed to house active drug-users, but apparently does, since the needle-pickup truck is there once a week. We are working on getting the (a copy of the) past decision from the Zoning Board of Appeals stating that Silvia Center cannot house active drug users, but its sadly just another thing that isn't enforced in the 46th Ward.
