[STORY UPDATED BELOW] This video was taken on Friday morning at 9:45AM in the heart of Flatbush, at the block of Community Hospital, which is located on East 26th Street between Avenues N and O.
YWN recieved dozens of complaints from doctors, FDNY Paramedics, nurses, hospital personnel, and block residents, all outraged why the street has not been cleared of snow six days after the blizzard hit.
“It’s outrageous that a block which ambulances use dozens of times each day has not been cleared of snow yet,” an emergency-room doctor told YWN.
It should be noted that it is 27 hours past the Mayor’s deadline when “every street in the city will be plowed”.

UPDATE 12:50PM EST: Two hours after YWN posted the above video and article calling Bloomberg a liar, the snow plows finally arrive.
Do people need to call Bloomberg a liar publicly to get something done in this city?!
How many patients died on this very street? How much emergency care was delayed at this very hospital because of Mayor Bloomberg?
Thanks to office of Councilman Mike Nelson who picked up on this article and very quickly arranged for multiple plows to start clearing the street. It’s greatly appreciated, but it’s way too late to offer proper thanks to anyone. People are now bitter at this city. The arrogance of Mayor Bloomberg is despicable. How dare he tell people to go to a Broadway Show on Monday evening – and this street where a hospital is located on is first getting plowed on Friday afternoon.
Shame on him and his entire administration.
