Can’t Get To The Mountains? Don’t Worry, The Mountains Are Here
But, the city seems to have come up with a temporary, but not so welcome solution to clear local streets — dump it in Canarsie, due to proximity of Sanitation Department’s snow melter at Flatlands Avenue and Milford Street.
Beginning last week, Avenue D, from East 101st to East 105th streets, has become the designated site for dumping snow cleared from streets around our borough.
When the Courier visited the area on Monday, trucks were dumping new loads onto the thoroughfare, after which Sanitation plows pushed and condensed it into a small mountain.
That stretch of Avenue D is primarily a commercial strip, so local homeowners aren’t being inconvenienced. But you have to wonder what local businesses along the four blocks, like UPS, think about the unsightly piles of gray snow right outside their offices.
Below are some photos of that street, as well as other mountains of snow in and around our community.
Smile, spring is only seven weeks away!
