Watch the video footage from four years ago of this same intersection picture above --- too date DEP and DOB cannot get this fixed and ditto for around the corner on St. Marks Place between 2nd Ave. and 1st and all over the city --- why are the streets and below the streets -- a dangerous mess? Ditto for the MTA?
Bloomberg and the worst city planner, Amanda the people's Burden, socialite mega-millionaire pushed a reckless, dangerous tsunami of development and by the way --- many if not all of the hideous New New York built could not survive an earthquake like Japan's.
DOB did not police the builds as they should have perhaps because of bribes and because there were too many builds too actually police but DOB, DEP, the MTA, Con Ed should have joined us in raised voices that said over and over Safety First!!! Bloomberg, Burden and Christine Quinn supported greed and stupidity first!
