What's the 311?

What's The 311?

An Occasional Look At What People in The City Are Complaining About by Chris Landers

By Chris Landers | Posted 1/7/2009

Over the past three winters, there have been more than 6,200 calls to 311 from people complaining about snow and/or ice. Here are the top 10 streets that needed a little extra salt.

1. Gittings Avenue (43 calls)

2. W. Northern Parkway (35 calls)

3. North Rosedale St. (28 calls)

4. W. Cold Spring Lane (27 calls)

5. E. Northern Parkway (24 calls)

6. Walbrook Avenue (22 calls)

7. Woodcrest Avenue (22 calls)

8. Edmondson Avenue (22 calls)

9. Loch Raven Boulevard (22 calls)

10. Herbert St. (21 calls)

Disclaimer: What's the 311 is based on data from the Mayor's Office of Information Technology (currently from Sept. 20, 2005, until Nov. 30, 2008). It has been folded, spindled, and mutilated along the way, and no attempt has been made to verify the accuracy of the calls. A case can be made that East and West Northern Parkway are, in fact, the same street. Should you choose to believe that, then the 10th slot goes to Raymar Avenue with 20 calls.
