Cadman Plaza Sidewalk Danger


Watch Your Step. For years walking through Cadman Plaza near Brooklyn Borough Hall has been a minefield caused by cracked and missing blue stone in the sidewalk. Hours after the 
Brooklyn Paper published an embarrassing article the DRP dispatched a crew to do some patching.

Note:  Blue stone can not be patched.  Mr. Markowitz was not happy with the shabby work. 
And no mention from the DPR's press office regarding how many years this situation has existed. And of course no apology. 

No word yet on whether Mr. Markowitz is willing to divert part of the $ 64 million set aside for his amphitheater to address this "dangerous" situation. 

Well, it’s a start.

Hours after The Brooklyn Paper went online with its world exclusive about the disastrously broken sidewalk in front of Borough Hall, someone made a fairly lame effort to fix it.

What once was an obstacle course of fractured paving stones is now an only-less-slighty dangerous walkway of half-dry mud and gravel. Even Borough President Markowitz agreed that the repairs were lousy.
