It is now nearly nine months since Superstorm Sandy caused an almost unprecedented level of destruction and everything has still not been put back together. NY 1 is reporting that residents in Brighton Beach are growing increasingly angry over the city’s failure to replace street signs lost in the storm.

The loss of the Brighton 2nd Lane sign at the intersection of Brighton 1st Street has caused confusion for residents, frustration compounded by the lack of a sign one block east at the intersection of Brighton 2nd place.

“I’ve had problems with UPS deliveries, I’ve had problems with people trying to find the house. They know the address but they can’t find the street,” resident Francis Caccavo told NY1.

Resident┬áLenny Shtab claims that he has contacted 311 numerous times but “nothing has been done.”

NY1 contacted the Department of Transportation which promised an inspection of the area, until then, good luck finding Brighton 2nd Lane.
