Below is a letter dated Monday, January 3rd to MyRye.com from outspoken Rye resident Jim Amico of Midland Avenue:
Here is a photo of just one of the many "CROSSWALKS" still blocked by snow plowed by the City of Rye! Care to take a guess at which CROSSWALK this is….this is where one little boy lost his life and another little boy nearly lost his/ Midland & Palisade!!!! School is back in and the crosswalks at this intersection are STILL BLOCKED by SNOW!!!
It took 2 days to clear the crosswalks on Purchase Street and around the train station on Purchase and Highland. The DPW guys were working hard to see these crosswalks were cleared, so I'm guessing clearing snow from "PLOWED IN CROSSWALKS" around Rye is the City's responsibility, if I am wrong please feel free to correct me!!!
BTW – I think our DPW did a GREAT job clearing the streets!!!
Curious, why a HIGH PROFILE Intersection like Midland and Palisade, where 2 CHILDREN were struck by cars, one FATALLY WOUNDED, is not a PRIORITY for CLEARING SNOW from the CROSSWALKS???????????
