Private Collection Box Blocks The Way

Community Board 14 is checking with the city to see whether or not this clothing collection box, which blocks about 4 feet of the 7-foot wide sidewalk making it difficult for some to pass, is permissible. The heavy metal box, which is about 7 feet tall and about 4 feet square, was installed near the 91 American Grocery & Deli on Beach 91 Street and Rockaway Beach Boulevard on October 7, according to Akram Hammad, the local manager for U’Sagain, a private company that profits by “recycling” clothing. Hammad said he would visit the site to see if the box should be relocated or removed.
