Residents urge city to repair sidewalk filled with cracks in front of Harlem senior center

HARLEM — Frustrated Harlem residents are urging city officials to fix a dangerous stretch of sidewalk that has caused several people to fall and injure themselves.

The section of sidewalk in Harlem, in front of the 155th Street subway station on Eighth Avenue and outside a senior center, is filled with cracks and holes.

"I fell and broke my ankle and had to be taken to the emergency room," Ibrahim Odhiambo said.

Some residents in the neighborhood complained that it is a hazard and said the problem has fallen through the cracks of the city system.

"Who's sidewalk is this? Who is responsible to maintain it? Someone will get hurt," Rene Johnson, a long-time resident of the neighborhood, said.

PIX11 News reached out to the MTA, the New York City Housing Authority, and the City's Department of Transportation.

The MTA said it's not property.

The DOT spokesperson said in a statement to PIX11 News:

"DOT will inspect the sidewalk condition and work with NYCHA on a repair."
