    Car parked on sidewalk in front of auto-repair shop on a Sunday. This is in violation of the building owner’s agreement with Community Board 14, which granted a variance for the operation of an auto shop in this residential neighborhood under certain conditions (including NO cars parked on the sidewalk). Have repeatedly reported this since the variance was granted, but the problem continues. I have also reported this to the police via the 311 smartphone app.

    I'm a Roosevelt Island resident. I'm also an avid bicyclist -- and I have a suggestion. It's great that a lane is set aside for cyclists crossing the bridge into Queens. But it would be helpful if the bridge's metal grill were covered by some sort of mat. You may not be aware of this, but -- when it rains -- metal-grill bridges are like sheets of ice if you're a cyclist, especially if you're on a road bike with thin tires. I was reminded of this two Sundays ago: My son and I were crossing the bridge on our bicycles early on Sunday morning, after the rain had stopped, and as soon as we hit the metal grill, we both started sliding. We immediately got off our bikes and walked them across.

    All this could have been far worse if we were going faster. But I knew enough to be careful -- thanks to an accident earlier this year. On March 6, while riding in New Jersey during the rain, I hit a similar metal-grill bridge. My bike slipped out from under me and I ended up with a broken shoulder blade, a dislocated finger and a hand that had to be surgically repaired.

    My suggestion: If you can't cover the metal grill on the bike lanes with mats, you might post a sign for cyclists warning them to walk their bicycles across the bridge when it's wet.

  • 8923 Bay Pkwy Brooklyn, NY 11214, USA - Bensonhurst
    There is a 10" wide, 4" deep section of the road missing across all lanes in both directions from a summertime road repair. I guess the plows must have removed the gravel that once filled it in.

  • 835 Riverside Drive New York, NY 10032 - Washington Heights
    Hot water is not reliably provided to residents. Problem affects whole building and has been reported repeatedly to management and to 311, but it persists. We never know when we turn on the hot water faucet whether the water will be warm or ice cold. Super is unreachable when it happens and the repair number given by management goes to an answering service.
