Local street artist entices Amtrak to take action

Astoria's newest bridge was constructed last month and likely won't cost the city millions in repairs. It's getting plenty of press and actually led to a fix that's been long needed. The "Scum River Bridge" as it's been named, is the latest project from local street artist and WLA member, Posterchild that is both practical and outspoken. You may remember him from the phone booth greenery he created in Astoria a few months back.

From Gothamist:
It allegedly makes 33rd Street, beneath the Hell Gate Bridge viaduct approach, a festering cesspool of standing water or (when it's cold) a festering cesspool popsicle! This thing has a nickname: the Astoria Scum River... and now that river has a bridge.
