Citizen Complaint

Fire Plug broken off on South side of Delancey Street, New York between Allen and Forsyth. It has been there at least two days ignored by the "authorities" that should restore its functional location seen on the side walk in the background of this photo. I shot the picture with my Google developer phone after turning on the add GPS to photo feature.

To get the map I resolved the EXIF data using by Photoshop to create the following string '40 43 10, -73 59 27' that regrettably puts the fallen fire plug location on the North side of the street but close enough for my purposes. This photo will be the reference image for my "Citizen Complaint" Android application to be submitted in NAVTEQ Global LBS Challenge due in few days. More details to follow.......
