On Monday, a project truck leaves truck route, gets stuck outside Prospect Heights elementary school; parents get offline apologies
Rather, the truck turned illegally on St. Marks Avenue, and the driver was stuck at the intersection of Underhill Avenue, which happens to be an elementary school, PS 9.
Hence the tweets below.
Semi stuck in the crosswalk - kids are going to school. A big FU to kids @PS9BklynPTO @VisionZeroNYC @NYPD77Pct pic.twitter.com/8BIGa42CQr— Lawrence Quigley (@ldquigley) May 9, 2016
Looks like @pacificparkbk? If so, any help @AshleyCCotton? Underhill, St Marks not truck routes! @NYPD77Pct https://t.co/nhnv9jvuUy— PS 9 Brooklyn PTO (@PS9BklynPTO) May 9, 2016
Forest City Ratner, the local face of Greenland Forest City Partners (Ashley Cotton heads external affairs) picked up the tweet, I'm told, and apologized offline, saying it shouldn't happen again.
(Which is what they, or Empire State Development, the state authority overseeing/shepherding the project, typically say.)
Forest City provided contact info for its Community Liaison (866-923-5315 or email@example.com).
But an apology is not enforcement, and I haven't learned of any fines or violations. In that case, the incident was within the 77th Precinct, while most project-related problems are in the 78th.
