    59th St Bridge New York , NY - Roosevelt Island
    At about 11:15pm the tram landed on the Roosevelt Island side. As we were walking towards the red bus stop. I noticed the red bus pull up, but didn't stop. It had no indication on the signage that it was out of service. I swear, we need a more consistent, and posted timetable at each stop like the MTA. This makes no sense. It's one street, not the whole city of manhattan.
  • 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.
  • 2770 Ocean Avenue New York, NY - City Council District 48
    So far, here are the issues we are forced to live with:
    1. Roach/pest infestation that is building-wide and NOTHING has been done in the two years we're living here
    2. Elevator (at least one of them) is making an awful noise and is in a constant state of disrepair.
    3. MOLD - our apt has it in both rooms and in the bathroom, I've spoken with other tenants - same story everywhere. Building owners aren't acting.
    4. Radiators hiss and emit an oily musty smell when the heat is on.
  • 157 Rockaway Blvd Queens, NY 11434, USA - Springfield Gardens
    Mutable bumps causes car to become unstable while trying to turn left .
  • 712 Brush Ave Bronx, NY 10465, USA - Throggs Neck
    There are 2 sink holes next to a drain on the corner of Senger Place and Brush Avenue for over 2 months now.
    There was one a few months ago that was filled and these formed right afterward.
  • Main St New York, NY - NYC District 5

    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.

  • 50 Stephens Ct Brooklyn, NY 11226, USA - City Council District 40
    Garbage bags not properly secured; whole garbage containers with open garbage spilling out of them. Saw a rat skittering away.
  • George Washington Bridge & Hwy 9 New York, NY 10033, USA - Washington Heights
    Stairs from Riverside Dr to NY-9A dead-end at a fence piled with trash. This is a very dangerous situation, particularly given the seclusion and length of the stairs. The sidewalk should be cleared and the steps should be repaired to facilitate pedestrian movement between Fort Washington Park and Washington Heights.

    One large pot hole is between 244 and 250 Union Avenue. It's deep and when cars 'drop in to it, it's loud, disruptive and, DANGEROUS.
  • West Road New York, NY - Roosevelt Island
    Roosevelt Island's Meditation Steps is a great place to sit by the East River and watch the boats go by, have a bite to eat, get some sun, think, read a book or just relax. except when there are holes in the wooden planks
