After a snowstorm in Brooklyn Heights, there always seems to be a disproportionate number of uncleared sidewalks. Sure, folks go out of town and may not have planned properly or the owner of a property may be elderly and have health or other reasons for not shoveling snow. However, Mayor deBlasio changed the game a little yesterday but shoveling the walk in front of his Park Slope home adding that despite his impending move to Gracie Mansion he will, throughout his term, be responsible for making sure his sidewalk would be cleared after a storm. Why? It’s the law. (But as a commenter mentions below sometimes doing nothing is doing something.)

As of midday Saturday (1/4), the sidewalk at the 27 Cranberry Street construction site has gone uncleared. Considering the project has not been welcomed with open arms by residents of the North Heights, a little charm offensive in the form of sidewalk shoveling would have gone a long way this week. Of course, if the work was contracted and the person charged with the responsibility was a no-show that would be a slightly different story.
