The Daily Gotham's Dan Jacoby has created a Pothole Patrol.
It's simple, really. When you see a pothole, jot down where it is (in front of what address), and about how big it is. Then call 311 to report it. At the end of your report, they'll give you a complaint number -- write it down. Finally, e-mail me at dan --at-- danjacoby.com and let me know all the details, including the complaint number.
