Some Larchmont residents say the MTA ruined their quality of life by cutting down trees and creating an eyesore outside their homes.
The MTA tore down a bunch of trees on Revere Road, and people who live there say when they look out their windows or are hanging out outside, they see the train tracks and debris.
The MTA tells News 12 projects like this are nothing new, and that trees and branches are removed so they don't fall on tracks, trains or power lines, which can cause disruptions for customers.
While the people who live there say they understand that trees and branches are sometimes removed, they don't think every single tree needed to be removed - and have since asked the MTA to put a nice fence and some plants there.
They say not only does it ruin their view, but there's no longer a sound barrier voiding the sound of the trains.
The MTA also told News 12 that some of the adjacent properties have encroached on the MTA's property. It plans on on taking back its property to store materials.
