  1. There must be hundreds of potholes and uneven sidewalks exactly like this one ~~~~or worse !!!
    What is this City’s Public Works Department thinking when they come to the spot and pour some LOOSE TAR PEBBLES on top of the hole~~~~~it is like putting a band-aid on someone who is HEMORRHAGING !!!
    A few years ago, I reported a 3 inch height difference between the brick sidewalk and the concrete sill~~~the truck finally came to take care of the problem~~~~4 men showed up (money wasted) One of them shoveled 2 piles of LOOSE TAR PEBBLES on to the area, and gave it a little pound. I told them that this will not take care of the problem~~~they shrugged and left. Well, now there are 3 levels to this edge !!!! It really did make it worse!! I am so very sick and tired of falling on uneven sidewalks and streets !!!! A person cannot take their eyes off of our next step for one minute !!!!
    AHHH OLD STORY!!!! from an OLD PERSON~~~~that’s how I feel these days !!
