This Week: Bronx Ped Safety, Brooklyn Gateway, Transit Trivia

Posted By Streetsblog On January 14, 2013 @ 1:38 pm In Livable Streets Events | No Comments

Last week, we covered the efforts of advocates to get the city and state to complete the missing link [1] in the Bronx River Greenway by building phase two of Starlight Park. That isn’t the only action happening along the greenway: There are two community board meetings this week to improve safety at pedestrian crossings leading to Concrete Plant Park.

Also this week: talk transportation in the neighborhoods near Downtown Brooklyn, help improve the G train, and test your transit knowledge.

  • Tuesday: Brooklyn Community Board 2 [2] will discuss the Brooklyn Gateway Transportation Vision Plan [3]. 6:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday and Wednesday: DOT and the Bronx River Alliance are meeting with community board committees about safer pedestrian crossings near Concrete Plant Park. On Tuesday [4], Bronx CB 9 meets at 6:00 p.m., and on Wednesday [5], Bronx CB 2 meets at 7:00 p.m.
  • Thursday: Join the Riders Alliance at a strategy session to win better G train service [6], including more frequent service, better communication with riders, and more free transfers from the G to other lines. 6:30 p.m.
  • Thursday: DOT is presenting its commercial bicycling and pedestrian wayfinding initiatives at Brooklyn Community Board 6 [7], covering Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Park Slope and Red Hook. Meeting begins at 6:30 p.m.
  • Thursday: Tickets for the New York Transit Museum’s first trivia night [8] — where teams test their knowledge of transit-themed movies, music, history and culture – are sold out. But the museum’s website [9] indicates that additional tickets will be made available 30 minutes before the event. 7:00 p.m.

Keep an eye on the calendar for updated listings. Got an event we should know about? Drop us a line [10].
