  1. A cracked and potholed Cooper Street is great, since it discourages drivers from speeding down it. I walk it daily, and I love it.

  2. That Fulton St work is a chronic utility problem. It’s like they have electric, drains and water mains all in the same passage. They are in there so often, they might as well create a door,

  3. There are several streets in the North End/Waterfront that need repair, not just Cooper, but streets that have higher traffic volume.
