City Wood Chipper Missing In Action

Fallen Branch in Sheepshead Bay

Some of you may have noticed the exceptionally windy weather we’ve had lately. With winds gusting at 45mph, many trees in the area took lots of damage, just like the following fallen branch across the street from 2260 East 19th Street. Most likely this grand branch snapped off last weekend as it’s been laying on the road since last Monday. We want to know: why is it still here? The branch represents a hazard for every pedestrian in the area. Children risk hurting themselves among the sharp and pointy twigs. The elderly risk tripping. And, worst of all, it’s taking up two parking spots right next door to an apartment building. Is this a case of apathetic residents or of a negligent city? In any case can some one please come clean this up!?
