Do the low lying areas in Brooklyn have similar problems with basement flooding? I'm assuming they have same old sewage infrastructure that NO politician ever upgraded...

It is kinda crazy to think about what DTJC accepts as "part of the deal". I agree that when taxes are 20-40K depending on rowhouse value there will be a lot more pressure on City Hall to get us out of the third world...


I can't speak for ALL of Brooklyn, but none of my friends that have houses in BK have ever complained of such craziness. I do know that the sewer backup phenomenon happens in the properties in the vicinity of the Gowanus. I am not sure about frequency, but I do know it has been written up before in some blogs. Based on the newsworthiness of such events, it would seem it only happens in rare occasions, but I have no idea.
