What’s wrong with the sewer system and flood system in Crown Heights?
Which other neighbourhoods in Brooklyn or elsewhere will have this
(surely necessary?) construction disburbing a busy block such as 770??
How did they choose us?

Just me

Every time a higher than average rain falls almost every house on the side of 770 gets the basement flooded.

something is wrong

” January 2024 to September 2025.” Is that a typo? Maybe the city can spend a little more money and hire a crew that can finish in a month or 2 as opposed to almost 2 years! You can build a development in 2 years, we are talking 2 blocks of sewers. Why should they block off streets and have the equipment sitting there not being used 99 percent of the time, but still cause traffic and heart ships for all for so long. This sounds crazy!

take the opportunity

Are you insane

I hope hey don’t redo the street corners extra wide that cuts out precious parking !!!!

PLEASE NOT AT 7 IN THE MORNING

There is always construction on pres between Kingston and Albany and makes so much noise and wakes up the kids in a bad mood. Please do not do it so early in the morning especially on shabbos

I appreciate the hard work of the Jewish Alliance and remaining on top of such things. The traffic on Kingston is horrendous as it is every morning, afternoon and evening. We must demand for this work to be done overnight!! Williamsburg would demand that and get it, let the city have workers at night.

Smart

That’s a really good idea. Any way we can vote that into happening?

Be Practical

To the above: This stuff ain’t getting done overnight and your one parking space at the corner could go if thousands of pedestrians enjoy it. Same regarding the bikes.

Although it would be nice if while spending so much money on underground work, they could spend just a bit more too make those blocks look presentable – normal (or no) trees, nicer pavement patterns, etc.
