Roosevelt Avenue trip hazard
This afternoon I watched as a woman coming out of the escalator exit of the Main Street-Roosevelt Ave 7 train station tripped and fell to the ground.
Her foot had become caught in a 3 inch deep gap caused by a missing section of sidewalk grate just about two feet from the top of the escalator.
There were no signs, cones or caution markers of any kind in the area, despite the heavy traffic that station receives from both commuters and MTA folks.
This could definitely cause someone some serious injuries.
Attached is a photo of the grate."

Let me guess...the grate became a victim of those metal collecting guys?
