This 311 user writes, “4 to 5 guys who use a large wooden box to do skateboarding tricks on! They were here for 2 hours and just stopped! It is LOUD and annoying with the constant pounding! The “Gassy” is shaped like an amphitheater which intensifies the sound 10 fold! The sign says “No Skateboarding!” Could you PLEASE have someone remove that box which they keep locked up to the fence by the garage wall.”

This 311 user says, “Sidewalk has a big step and my tenants keep tripping on it. I am afraid if they or anybody that falls will sue me. It is in front of my building on 93 Endicott Street.”

This 311 user writes, “This is now the second morning in a row that they are jackhammering at 7am in a residential area. It’s extremely disruptive and annoying to be woken up like this every morning. Please do something.”
The original 311 post can be found here. The case was submitted on July 18, 2019. The case was closed and then reopened on July 18, 2019 with the following notes: “Closed with status: Case Noted. Permits are issued to start work at 7 AM. This is a MASSDOT job. Not the City of Boston’s jurisdiction.”
“Reopened with status: NOTE: referenced attachment is in HISTORY tab. I have contacted MASS DOT and they let me know that this is not their. project, this is the city’s project and to contact you for information and complaints on this project. Please see screenshot attached from MASS DOT. It is very frustrating that they are allowed to jackhammer so early in the morning to do what looks like non-urgent or life threatening repairs on perfectly good sidewalks. The construction outside of normal business hours is having an adverse affect on the quality of life of living in the North End. This is not the first time that this has happened and I feel compelled to bring this to your attention.”
