Falling Bricks at 5 Holden Ct

Labor Unrest at 2 Battery Wharf
This 311 user says, “Labor unrest: How can the city continue to condone this all day yelling and screaming in our residential neighborhood by Local 24? It is now almost 7pm and this has been going on since 7 am! Why do the law abiding and tax paying residents of the North End have to put up with this kind of infantile extortion of a legitimate business??”

Overflowing Trash at 40 Commercial Whf E
This 311 user writes, “Dumpster behind Joe’s American Bar and Grill is throwing out toxic, foul-smelling waste into the area which drains directly into the harbor. Boston 311, I am shocked this type of pollution is permitted!! Every other restaurant in the North End has their garbage picked up daily without the use of dumpster/trash compactor. Joe’s American Bar and Grill on Christopher Columbus Park is a neighborhood restaurant for the rat community. Please address this insult to the harbor ASAP! Thank you!!!”
