Sinking Sidewalk at Orchard and Delancey Poses Danger to Pedestrians

The corner of Orchard and Delancey
Now here’s a corner just waiting for a sacrificial leg for a feast.
The sidewalk outside Rox gallery – Delancey and Orchard – has been sinking for quite some time. At least the last six months. Of course, the terrible winter and recent spat of heavy rain couldn’t have helped matters much. The curb is properly level, yet the sloped portion of the walkway is a dangerous trap. It’s easily a few inches below grade at this point.
Some traffic cones were temporarily placed as a precautionary measure, but that hasn’t really stopped pedestrians from tripping.
Watch your step.
