John Slattery, the actor who plays the affable exec Roger Sterling in AMC's hit drama Mad Men, is reportedly unhappy with the city's plan to develop a multi-million dollar sanitation garage in his neighborhood. And rightfully so! But unfortunately for all parties, this is the kind of garage that doesn't matter where you put it -- somebody's gonna be unhappy living next to a battalion of dump trucks.

Slattery and his neighbors on Spring Street in Soho are concerned that the influx of garbage trucks will pose a threat to pedestrians, but a spokesman for Mayor Bloomberg sees it as a way to "free up nearby space" to develop into parkland, 1010 Wins reports.

Garbage trucks, public parks, an angry actor...the Sanitation Department could certainly use a little Sterling Cooper ad magic to shine this plan up.
