This 311 user says, “Additional information: I think they have done a wonderful job repairing streets and sidewalks in Boston to serve tourists. As a Boston Resident it would be great if you could suggest repairs on certain areas. I live on 80 Commercial street, one of the only tree lined streets in the North End. We have many sight seeing guests everyday. They suffer the same as local residents with the broken bricks, and uneveness of the pavers. I have had my elderly mother visit numerous times and she struggles to not fall when walking.”
