This week, engineers from the NYC Department of Transportation (DOT) will begin work to tackle the ponding issues on the Broadway side of Dante Park, between 63rd and 64th Streets. They will soon be installing a trench drain to alleviate ponding in the area. We appreciate DOT's commitment to solving this issue quickly and hope it will be fixed soon!
