NYT Verdict: Park Slope is not foul and filthy

“Despite the foul and filthy outcome predicted by many, Park Slope does not look or smell like an urban wasteland. The drains have not overflowed; Union Street and Seventh Avenue are not buried under garbage. Nonetheless, the alternate side parking rules are scheduled to go back into effect tomorrow.”

“To offer some perspective, limited access roadways countrywide are swept as little as once a year, and even within the five boroughs, some neighborhoods are not swept at all. Surely much of this city could be kept clean with a weekly or monthly visit from the street sweepers.”
