    Not safe

    This does not look safe. With all the crime they need more light not less. The city should be setting up those portable event lamps until this is fixed.

    More lights

    More lights

    It would be nice if all CH streets will have more lights not just Kingston and Albany, all private houses as well and not just few intersection lights on the corners and security cameras too …. now it’s summer coming and more often people will go out till late hours. Thanks for taking care of the issue .

    Very important!

    I’m no genius, but this action will definitely increase the crime rate in crown heights.

    It’s like Dinkins days when the city did not change lights that burnt out. Soon these liberals will outlaw street lighting as it hurts the natural look of the environment. Keep outlawing everything but criminals. No plastic bags,no paper bags,no fur,no building glass buildings and make life more difficult fo New Yorkers. Tax drivers and drive up taxes. Waste tax payers money on going after President Trump and corrupting the next generation.

    file a complaint with the Department of Transportation, if the street lights on your block are dark, tell them!
    once you have the complaint number you can also call Jaoson Hur at Laurie Cumbo’s office and give him the complaint number

    EVERYONE should call/be heard from
