Description

In the Drexel/Ingleside alley (the alley behind the odd side of Drexel) between 54th and 55th streets there are:
- Wires drooping down to a level that they are almost hit by cars
- Loose wires hanging down from many of the telephone poles to ground level where they can be touched - I have no idea if these are live phone/cable wires
- Horrible rats nests of cables on the telephone poles showing years of neglect. If this is abandoned/old cable it should all be taken down/cleaned up because it is an eyesore and probably a maintenance nightmare
- Plastic garbage bags being used to cover wiring junctions up on the same telephone poles, instead of proper wiring enclosures.

Whatever utility is responsible for these poles and this wiring is not doing its job - I suspect this is a safety issue, but even if it is not, it surely is degrading the quality/reliability of service delivered to these residents and at the very least is an eyesore.
