Eastern Queens buried
"72 Hours Later in Springfield Gardens (Picture says it all)" - Donovan
It is 8:30 PM Tuesday - nightime in Glen Oaks - this is what is happening right now. A wall of snow was left by City Sanitation blocking access to 249th Street just off Union Tpke.
2 Buses Stuck & Bus Stuck: Major intersection of 260 Street and Langston Avenue, 2 buses are trapped and can't move. This blocks nearby access to LIJ Medical Center which is adjacent to Glen Oaks Village
1 Access-a-ride bus is stuck at another intersection
Earlier today - Fire Battalion Chief Car gets stuck in Glen Oaks as he travels behind a Fire Truck. The streets have not been plowed here.
City Sanitation Plow Truck broke down on Little Neck Parkway and needs to be pushed by another City Plow Truck.
On Monday afternoon an LIJ ambulance was stuck in Glen Oaks Village and had to be towed out.
However, I am happy to report that Councilman Mark Weprin and Assemblyman David Weprin's streets in front of their homes have been plowed to the asphalt.
I called Dist 13 sanitation a few minutes ago, spoke to the foreman and begged for snow plows tonight in our community. I will keep my fingers crossed.
This is a SNOW JOB and there is no accountability, only excuses.
President, Glen Oaks Village
