SUNSET PARK - Brooklyn residents have more complaints about the job the snowplows and salt trucks did after last month?s blizzard ? they left behind a mess of potholes and cracked pavement.

On Sunset Park?s Hamilton Avenue the snow is finally cleared from the roads, but left in its place are deep potholes. Residents say the already worn down and pocked roads have been made even worse.

?Well I think generally that the road conditions here make us look like a third world nation,? resident Mark Woodley says.

The Department of Transportation is asking city residents to report potholes on its website. Drivers can also files claims with the city if their cars have been damaged by the potholes.
