Parks keeps tree limbs dangling
Tree limb hangs in mid air, like sword, on power lines- threatens pedestrians and vehicles in Richmond Hill Queens NY SINCE JANUARY 30th!
Huge tree limb broke off tree and is resting (being supported) in mid-air on power lines, over a bus stop and traffic on Atlantic Ave between 116th and 117th Streets.
I reported this on Jan 30 at 11:30 in the morning to 311 who also had me talk to 911. Someone came and put caution tape by the afternoon. 311 confirmation C1-181677298. See also C1-181677298, which I reported on Jan 10 2013 and still hangs over traffic.
As of today, Feb 01 at 4pm, the branches remain.
I called Con Ed about it, I assumed that they would have been contacted by 311/911?
He said an emergency crew will inspect it and send tree crew, which may take time.
I also reported the cracked and leaning pole on the corner off 117th Street and Atlantic Avenue, which has been been in this condition for years. I reported that several times over the years; the last time was days before Sandy struck.
I hope no one gets hurt or killed by these before action is taken.
