Eyes on the Street: Safer Crossings on Fourth Avenue in Brooklyn
Posted By Stephen Miller On October 10, 2012 @ 4:36 pm In Eyes on the Street,Pedestrian safety,Sunset Park,Walking | 12 Comments
Fourth Avenue in Sunset Park, from 65th Street to 15th Street, is getting its road diet after Brooklyn Community Board 7 overwhelmingly approved changes  to the street in May.
Seven pedestrians were killed in traffic along the corridor between 2006 and 2011. To make it safer, DOT is reducing Fourth Avenue from three lanes in each direction to two, with expanded medians for crossing pedestrians and a wider parking lane, as shown in these  photos  sent by reader @J_uptown on Twitter..
