Firetruck gets stuck on Willets Point Boulevard

From Iron Triangle Tracker:

"An alert Willets Point business owner snapped a shot that speaks to the road conditions in the area. A firetruck from Engine 289 in Corona was unfortunate enough to get stuck in one of Willets Point’s many gaping potholes near 38th Avenue and Willets Point Blvd. following last week’s snowstorm."

This comes as no surprise. The City of New York has been neglecting the roads at Willets Point for decades. Here are some photos that show the blight they have caused.

These streets are not navigable, and not only is the safety of workers and visitors to the Point put at risk, but so is the rest of Queens when first responders are delayed because of City negligence.
