Watch out for the Mud Slide!

A blog reader sent in these photos of what greets him when he leaves his luxurious Stuyvesant Town residence. A huge mudslide, garbage and the ever-present dumpster. He writes:

"This has been my T for the past few days. Huge fucking mudslides that I literally cannot skate through - my skateboard gets STUCK in all the mud, even cruising at full speed. Also, note the wonderful dumpster that has been a part of my front yard for the past few months now. Always a shiny new blue dumpster to fill up with shit."

That's what happens when you skateboard on the sidewalk !

Anyone remember when it actually was safe for pedestrians to walk around here ? Before the management decided to deploy the mechanized army and ignore everything else speeding around ?

I think the skateboard comment was a joke.

Why do the tenants near this eyesore put up with this? A little community activism will likely cause change. Where were you people in the 60s? And if you are too young to remember the 60s and you live in Manhattan you very likely voted for the Community Organizer Extraordinaire- President Obama , whose community organizing activities you should emulate to get things done!

And what are you doing?

When we had a similar problem in PCV 5 years ago I organized a group of tenants to deal with it and we got some concessions.
That is what the people living near the dumpsters need to do.
