Photo taken on Wednesday morning, but the conditions are the same Thursday morning. Click to enlarge.
The owner of the building at 386 68th Street almost never shovels the snow in front of his property.
NYC law requires that landlords remove snow from the sidewalk in front of their property within four hours of the end of snow, or the next morning if the end of the snow is at night.
The most recent snowfall ended Monday in the daytime. It's now Thursday, and the sidewalk at 386 68th St is still unshoveled, and is now hardpacked and dangerous.
Note that Fourth Avenue in the background ( and every other street in the city ) have been clear since Monday night. Not this sidewalk.
NYC does not enforce the snow removal law.
The worst offender? New York City itself. Take a good look at the overpasses over the highway up on Seventh Avenue. They're owned by the City. And the City has never shoveled any of these walks, not for the past fifteen years anyway.
