Not in the district, but in the spirit

On 65th Street and Ft. Hamilton Parkway a turn signal has to be added to the existing lights to allow cars to turn right or left onto the avenue. If you have the chance, go down to that intersection and watch the cars try to turn onto Ft. Hamilton Parkway from 65th Street. It is an accident waiting to happen. Thank you, - SL

I can't well fix this one, but I can sure tell Simcha.

Amen to that

From reader MS:

My mother needed to drop off donuts for my children and just pulled over for less than a split second to hand me out the donuts; there was a cop blocking her in and giving her a whopping $115 dollar ticket. That's about half what she earns a week.
When you become a council member I would like someone who is not a rubber stamp to Bloomberg and undoes all he has done. Reduce all those fees and make Brooklyn a place you can actually live in.

10th Avenue Parking Sign

Sent in by reader SJ. Seems like I could probably take care of this one whether I get elected or not, with a couple of hex bolts.

Collapsed fence, dilapidated small park

Spotted this one right off New Utrecht and 46th.

It's the little things

A lot of big issues have come up in this campaign - but the things I hear about most from voters as I go door-to-door are the small things. Potholes. Traffic lights. Parking tickets. Decaying infrastructure. Dirty streets. Graffiti.

These are the everyday things that can make our lives better or worse. And every one of these small changes is within our reach. As our next representative on the City Council, I pledge to make these quality of life concerns my number-one priority. And I invite readers of this blog to contribute photos or descriptions of neighborhood problems. Just email a photo or a note to We'll post your concern here. And I pledge to fix the problem within my first year in office.
