Grab your boats and swimmies folks! Come on down to frank court, where the DOT was kind enough to install this man made pond/ice skating rink. There is no telling how deep the center is because I left my kayak at home. If I had to guess, I would say the pond is about 20 feet wide to maybe 50 feet long.
On a serious note:
An incredibly large “lake” forms on Frank Ct every time it rains or snows and its because of an incredibly stupid reason. The Department of Transportation (DOT) decided around 2 months ago to put black top by the sewer; effectively blocking the flow of water. It blocks the water so well that it leaves 1-4 inches of water on half the block.
Residents have called 311 who sent the DEP who in turn promised they would contact the DOT. The issue was also brought to Marty Golden’s office but according to residents nothing was followed up on. With nothing being done, residents are trying to do what they can by throwing down salt to soften or melt the ice so a car doesn’t end up in one of their living rooms.
I even did some video on this:
