Fire hydrant has been open full blast on my street for at least 9 hours. I've called 311 (NYC's non-emergency hotline) three times over these hours; they transfer me to the relevant department, the DEP, who take the report, but nobody comes. Yes I'm positive I'm reporting the correct intersection, and it's ultra-simple to find. Anybody else I can call or anything else I can do anonymously? [more inside]

Where can I buy orange flower water in New York City?
We signed a lease (2 copies) on a new apartment in NYC, at our broker's office. The 2 copies were sent to the management company. As promised, the management company sent one of the copies back to us about a week later. It's got our original signatures, but the landlord didn't sign it! The line for the landlord's signature is empty. Doesn't this mean that we're bound to the terms of the contract, but the landlord is not? It seems very wrong. Is it normal? Should we demand a copy of the lease with the signatures of both parties on it?
