Meant to mention this earlier... NY1 had this report last Wednesday ... about a big-ass crack in the sidewalk on East Fourth Street between Avenue B and Avenue C (on the north side, a little closer to C)...
Residents say that they've been tripping over "the Grand Canyon of East Fourth Street" for years.
"I think it's terrible," said one resident. "Anybody could fall break their leg or something. It's terrible. That needs to be addressed."
Calls to 311 have yielded zero results.
According to the city's Department of Transportation, it's the property owner's responsibility to fix the sidewalk. It turns out that the sidewalk sits in front of a city housing authority building. After NY1 told that to DOT, inspectors went out to take a look at what needs to be fixed. DOT said it'll start the process to make that happen.
Place your bets on when something may finally happen. Dibs on 2018!
