purpose mission is:
311's mission is to provide the public with quick, easy access to all New York City government services and information while maintaining the highest possible level of customer service.Nice and helpful, don't you think? Anyway, what bugged me was this:
A big, fat hole in the ground, on East Broadway, right next to the beautiful and historic Seward Park and Seward Park Library. Walk by it on a near-daily basis.
Of course, dealing with any bureaucracy, let alone NYC's, is a nightmare. And that's why I had to do a double-take, when, less than 2 weeks later...
How's that for government efficiency? Well, let's not go so crazy here, because this was also on that same stretch of East Broadway...
Now, it's just filled in with cement. Perhaps during the next Bloomberg administration?
