A Woodhaven jiggle joint is once again causing problems for local residents.

Alexandria Delves spoke at this month's Community Board 9 meeting, and described some of the behavior that goes on around her home due to its proximity to The TrapHouse at 78-16 Atlantic Avenue.

Offending activities include public fornication, drug use, and violent physical altercations.

“We have submitted complaints, we made petitions, we spoke about it at the last community board meeting,” Delves said. “We don’t know what else to do.”

In June, the board passed a motion to write a letter to the State Liquor Authority requesting the revocation of the club’s liquor license.

Natalia Kozikowska, communications director for Councilman Eric Ulrich, said the councilman's office has been working on the issue.

“The councilman organized a meeting with community residents and the NYPD this past summer,” she said. “Since then, the complaints have really died down. I don’t think we’ve received any complaints on The TrapHouse in over two months or so.”

After initial complaints, Delves said some action was taken by the 102nd Precinct.

“There was some police activity and it got better, but now it has died down and we are going back to the same activities as before,” she said. “There are children around, so please don’t wait for a tragedy to happen to do something.”
