Description

The northwest corner of the intersection of Blackstone Ave. & 57th Street turns into a small lake, about 4 inches deep, whenever it rains or snow melts; then freezes over and creates a slipping hazard; last year at least one broken ankle occurred. The sewer drain does not accept the water and is more than likely broken. The water covers an area 10 feet across and children have to walk in the street to make it to the other side.
