We’ll call it the “power of the Mess.” In response to our “Mess of the Moment” blog post two weeks ago, Councilman Fernando Cabrera’s office called Con Edison to ask the energy provider to take care of the eyesore, which is in his 14th Council District. On July 6, a week after the post appeared here on the blog, Con Edison responded by sending a crew to clean up the pile of barricades and cement blocks, which blocked parking spots in front of an apartment building and neighboring houses.
