Typical street issues North Kings Cross

I started this website in 2006 to help me record, get fixed and tell others about street issues in the Northern part of Kings Cross – mainly North of Copenhagen Street.  I noticed quickly that if i made my private dialogue with the council public things seemed to get done more quickly.  Over the years things have got better thanks to some good work by council officers, help from Councillor Convery and concerted action by neighbours.  But i am concerned by some slippage in recent months.  Here are some pictures of typical issues i picked up in a short bike ride on Friday evening (Sept 10th 2010).  All now reported to contact Islington.
