Doyers Street Now Clear

Posted on: December 31st, 2010 at 10:17 am by

As of 9 am this morning, the snow is almost completely cleared from Doyers Street.  What remains now is random piles, but the roadway is now navigable. For foot and wheel.  Perhaps the call to action has something to do with a certain visit last night.

We received a tip from reader Lwsourpatch yesterday explaining that sanitation workers finally arrived to address the problem here:

Walked by Doyers around 530p today, and noticed a couple Dept of Sanitation officials standing on the corner of Doyer and Pell along with what looked like a Chinatown representative (he was in a suit), the official Dept of Sanitation car was there too (of course it didn’t go anywhere because nothing was plowed).  So maybe by morning that street will finally be plowed?
