Brooklynites Now Have Their Own Website To Report Potholes

This winter has been unkind to New York City streets and our corner of Brooklyn has not been spared. After the snow and freezing rain of the last few weeks, huge potholes have popped up on local roads. And just today, it was announced that the Manhattan side of the Brooklyn Bridge will be closed for emergency pothole repair.
Now, Borough President Marty Markowitz's office announced that Brooklynites can access a website to report these 'craters'.

No statement on how long it will take the city to fill these holes.

BP Markowitz directs Brooklynites to www.brooklyn-usa.org to report pothole problems
On Wednesday, February 9, Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz urged Brooklynites to report pothole issues in Brooklyn only on the Borough President’s website, www.brooklyn-usa.org. Just click on the button “Report Potholes in Brooklyn.” The reports will be forwarded to the Community Service Center at Borough Hall for appropriate handling.

For residents without Internet access, please call the Community Service Center at 718-802-3777.

I just read your article on potholes and called the office Marty Markowitz for more information.
They informed me that I can email them pothole reports made by my iPhone and Android app. that reports potholes.
I believe this app will be very useful to citizens in Brooklyn.
