Ten days and counting of flooding from water break on Hillside Avenue in front of a bus stop, running down 171st Street and pooling in front of homes on 88 Ave, despite numerous complains from residents and businesses and the situation is getting worse. I have called 911 twice, spoke with FDNY, contacted DEP, as has the owner of the deli at Hillside & 171st. Don’t think this would go on for two days if in front of Katz’s house in Forest Hills or Mayor DickBlasios’ place in Park Slope. New video of Hillside River coming soon.
There is a great line in the Kelsy Grammer Starz series “BOSS”, where they were planning on upgrading run down projects made awful from residents, drug dealers and gang bangers:
“So you want to upgrade the ghetto projects and put the same people back in them that caused the problems to begin with.”
