On Saturday, over 50 people, including several local electeds and candidates, joined bereaved family members for a memorial march  in honor of pedestrians killed on Ninth Avenue in Hell's Kitchen.
In recent years, drivers have struck and killed six people on Ninth between 36th and 45th Streets. The victims were eulogized this weekend, with the circumstances of their deaths -- some of which received little or no mention in local media -- recounted. The march was sponsored by the Clinton Hell's Kitchen Coalition for Pedestrian Safety (CHEKPEDS), the Hell's Kitchen Neighborhood Association and Transportation Alternatives.
