Brownsville residents say city ignoring fallen tree over street

Residents in Brownsville are upset that the city has done nothing to remove a large tree that fell over Strauss Street more than a week ago.

Neighbors say the tree fell 10 days ago across the street and that the fire department only came by to move the tree to the center of the street so cars could get by, but no one has come by to remove the tree.

The Parks Department tells News 12 Brooklyn it will send an inspector to the location to insure the tree and branches are removed by tomorrow.
