Illegally parked tour buses is a major concern for Battery Park City residents. The Community Board and local Park Enforcement Patrol (PEP) have been willing to assist in eradicating the buses.
Suddenly, for unknown reasons, the PEP Captain Ed Falcon and the BPCA have decided that the PEP will no longer respond to complaints and instruct the tour buses to leave. At the October meeting of the BPC subcommittee of the CB1, board member Anthony Notaro seemed to have been informed of the change, and was instructing audience members, misleadingly and incorrectly, that the PEP are not allowed to remove buses because they are more than one block away from a park.
We called Captain Falcon to investigate ( see video).
