We really wish this was just a bad Halloween prank. After all, the flooding of the highly contaminated and superfunded Gowanus Canal was atrocious enough this week in Carroll Gardens. Alas, this is not a Halloween prank. This is real and we have seen with our very own eyes what a neighbor just wrote in to tell us:
"Massive amounts of raw sewage being dumped onto the street from the building on the corner of Smith and 2nd place. I think it is 134 2nd Pl. Kids and parents are walking through it. Totally disgusting And a mystery."
It is true! Please see the absolutely disgusting images sent to us below by our source and help us to call 311! There is a very long hold on the 311 line these days.
Indeed it seems to be coming from the above address and/or the curb cut area at the 360 Smith Street Building. Is this a sewar back-up?? a flood? illegal dumping? we have no idea.....UGH!!!!
Please be careful and do not walk over there, especially not with your little trick or treaters! The smell should be warning enough! I guess we should be happy the F Train is closed due to Sandy!)
We are still trying to reach 311 as this post is being written.
