Thanks to everyone who came out yesterday to support efforts to make Park Avenue safer for pedestrians! We had a great crowd help to mark the release of the Park Avenue Pedestrian Safety Plan, including a class of students from Banneker, community leaders from Ingersoll and Whitman, block captains, Architecture for Humanity NY, Transportation Alternatives, Councilmember James and Assemblymember Lentol, and others representing local elected officials.
Press was there, too, and there's already been some buzz in the blogosphere about the initiative, including this piece on Brownstoner and this one on Streetsblog.
If you haven't yet, please sign the petition, and share it with your neighbors and friends! We'll keep you posted on progress as we share the report with city agencies and decision makers. Stay tuned!
