R.I.P. Bushwick Newspaper Box Pothole Filler, 2014-2014

June 9, 2014 | Marina Galperina

The giant pothole in the middle of the Hart St and Knickerbocker Ave intersection in Bushwick has been “fixed.” This bright yellow El Especialito newspaper box was creatively placed into the hole to warn drivers of the obstacle (by replacing it with a more noticeable one). The hole was big enough to partially submerge the newspaper box. The box was removed this morning.

The giant gaping hole in the middle of the street remains. It is now filled with rain water from the morning deluge.
