Mess Of The Month: Greetings From Lake 67th Street

The corner of 67th Street and Bay Parkway the day after a light rain

There’s rain in the forecast for early this evening, which reminds me of a photo I recently took while running an errand.

If you’ve ever noticed, many a corner in our neck of the woods either has insufficient drainage or, in some cases, apparently no drainage at all.

The above image shows the northeast corner of 67th Street and Bay Parkway, which is very much in need of a sewer. Even though I remembered it barely raining the night before, this little bugger was still lingering, causing holiday shoppers hauling large bags of groceries and gifts to leap over it.

Got a good photo of a puddle that just won’t go away? Please send it to jteutonico[at]bensonhurstbean[dot]com.
