City Finally Replaces Light Bulbs in Columbus Park After Months of Darkness
Something as simple as changing light bulbs got caught up in the city bureaucracy. Nevertheless, after an extended period plunged in darkness, Columbus Park in Chinatown is back under the lights.
The city last week installed LED bulbs in a majority of the eighteen light poles dotting the park. This was the task, strangely, of the Department of Transportation.
The fix arrives after numerous complaints submitted by locals since at least this past July.
It just goes to show you that 3-1-1 is oftentimes useless. In this case, it took a story on Bowery Boogie (and followed up on NBC New York) for the city to finally take action.
