Residents: Broken sidewalks are safety hazards
Residents in Hunts Point say two broken sidewalks are a safety hazard and are in desperate need of repair.
The pavement at Seneca Avenue and Irvine Street has been damaged for several years and continues to get worse, according to pedestrians.
"I have twisted my ankle numerous times," says Monique Henry. "Nothing serious, but it needs to be fixed."
Several blocks away at Seneca and Longfellow avenues, the sidewalk is also cracked. A resident discovered that the property owner is Triumph Construction. A Triumph supervisor wouldn't speak with News 12 on camera, but said he hasn't received any complaints about the sidewalk located outside the company's stockpile yard.
Residents say they have called 311 to report the uneven pavement, which is difficult for wheelchair-bound people and strollers to navigate.
