Life of a New York City Sidewalk

Motor Vehicle Accidents

New York City Sidewalk Lawyer

New York City is made up of 12,750 miles of sidewalks. Many times people are injured due to the failure of a property owner to maintain its sidewalk in a reasonably safe condition.

The New York City Department of Transportation’s (DOT) goal is to attempt to keep the sidewalks safe for pedestrians and help prevent injuries caused by defective sidewalks.

The DOT replaces more than 2 million square feet of sidewalk a year, mostly on City-owned property and in residential neighborhoods. Despite the large scale of repairs, this amounts to less than 1% of the City’s total sidewalk area each year. DOT relies on property owners to maintain the rest of the sidewalks.
