Several inches of rainwater is covering the ground at a Brooklyn playground, something neighbors say is a repeated concern.
Mellett Playground is partially off-limits to the public due to construction. However, the excessive flooding has been something neighbors have conversed about for years.
Residents say on a regular rainy day they can see several inches of standing water piling in the center of the park.
Commuters should be wary of low-lying areas like Mellett Playground where you can unintentionally encounter deep puddles and flooding.
