No Major Facelift for BQE Ditch -- Only 'Botox'

A big crowd turned out for the "Fix the Ditch" meeting held May 4 at LICH, according to the Brooklyn Eagle. But as was expected, major redos -- such as decking over the entire trench (an idea of Mayor Bloomberg, shown above) -- aren't in the works.

Rather, reports Trudy Whitman, "Enhancements will be more on the order of nips, tucks and Botox injections, so to speak."
