MTA Takes a Dump on Rockaway
Elisa O'Toole was driving along Edgemere Boulevard when she noticed a truck dumping some sort of liquid into the street, a few yards away from the subway station at Beach 35th Street. When she smelled a terrible odor, she immediately called The Wave and stayed at the location.
When I arrived, the men -- clad from head to toe in white hazmat suits -- were spreading the liquid and what only can be described as clotted masses of filth into the street. I immediately began taking pictures, and when I asked what they were doing, they said it was their job, and it was safe.
"If it is so safe, why are you wearing hazmat suits?" I asked. They didn't respond. I kept taking pictures.
This investigation is ongoing, and we will keep you updated.
