If you walk to 231st and Broadway, you probably use the Summit Place stepstreet. So you’ve probably noticed:
- There’s usually a lot of garbage on the steps and especially in the areas to the left and right of the steps.
- Several of the light poles have been knocked down over time, so there are only a few lights on the steps at night.
- There’s one seriously broken step at the moment, and a few that are cracked.
- The weeds need to be cut back.
It isn’t easy to call 311 about a step street, because for some complaints you need a street address. But it’s important that we submit complaints about this step street, or it will not get cleaned or repaired. Try calling it “Summit Place between Bailey Avenue and Heath Avenue” or refer to it as the step street next to one of the addresses on Bailey or Heath Avenue. I’ve called Councilman Cabrera’s office, and Community Board 8, and shared my 311 complaints with them, so they can push to have them addressed.
If you call, add a comment here letting us know that you made a complaint!
