2012-02-22 LIRR maintenance truck parks on sidewalk & greatly reduces safety for pedestrians or those with wheels

Location: 
NE corner of 6th Ave & Pacific St
When: 
February 22, 2012 - 2:18pm

2012-02-22 LIRR maintenance truck parks on sidewalk & reduces safety for pedestrians because the sidewalk on this peculiar NE corner of 6th Ave & Pacific is extremely narrow with the gate & access ramp into the rail yard is always wide open & makes pedestrians step into the active Pacific St, this even occurs when no trucks park on the sidewalk.

Arrow in picture points out the lack of clearance for pedestrian safety much less anyone using a wheelchair or baby carriage. This route to the Atlantic Centre is traveled extensively by child minders with baby carriages from the local community. Like these examples:
