DOT will consider pedestrian safety on Cherry Street

Cherry Street crossingsThe Lo-Down reports that NYC Department of Transportation has agreed to look into measures to increase pedestrian safety on Cherry Street between our coop and Corlears Hook Park.

Michael Marino and Friends of Corlears Hook Park have led the way, bringing suggestions to our community board and starting a petition to bring support to the measures. Consideration will go to removing parking spaces that block sightlines at the corner of Cherry Street and FDR Drive, installing a traffic light at that intersection, and creating a mid-block crosswalk right at the entrance to Corlears Hook Park.

Check out the Lo-Down for the full story.
