Catch basin hazards in Jackson Heights
Residents called PIX11 News to investigate nasty catch basins in their Queens neighborhood posing a threat to pedestrians and bicyclists trying to traverse the streets.
When we arrived on Wednesday, we spotted a young family with a new baby having to watch their step while walking past a busted catch basin on Northern Boulevard and 74th Street.
Mohammad Haque called it a hazard.
Residents said they’ve been complaining to the city about the problem for months but nothing has been done to fix the issue.
“It’s terrible; an accident waiting to happen,” one passerby said.
