New Light Fixtures Bring Back Pooping Pigeons To Roosevelt Landings Arcade - There Has To Be A Better Way Says Frustrated Roosevelt Island Resident

Received the following message from a Roosevelt Island resident:

A while ago Hudson-Related replaced the lights again in the arcade. I’m not talking about the hanging lights but the lights attached to the walls in the middle of the arcade. The lights that are there now have a flat surface that pigeons sit on and now we are back to the same problem.

There is pigeon poop in the middle of the arcade every morning, and most of the day, that the Urban American guys have to clean up every day. Not only is the clean-up a problem but people can no longer just walk freely in the arcade but one has to move to the sides so that they don’t get hit with pigeon poop. There has to be a better way.
I asked Hudson Related to comment. Will update when answer received.

UPDATE 1:30 PM - A Hudson Related spokesperson replied:
We are actively looking into solutions.
