Reimagine Jay Street: March 10th


A great opportunity to reshape a key downtown Brooklyn space is coming up.  This is your chance to be heard.
Our friends at Transportation Alternatives are hosting a community workshop next week geared toward making safety improvements on Brooklyn’s Jay Street, “a critical connector to the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridge [that] lacks the bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure needed to protect New Yorkers from dangerous traffic.” Jay Street was an area of particular concern for cyclists who participated in the the BK Gateway Vision, a 2012 report released by Tri-State, then-Councilmember Letitia James, the Park Slope Civic Council, the Boerum Hill Association and the Prospect Heights Neighborhood Development Council that highlights the transportation and land use challenges facing Downtown Brooklyn.

I'm still trying to find Silver Springs in Windsor Terrace or Kensington but I'm pretty sure Jay Street does not run to Carroll Gardens. Let me try Google--the arbiter of all things geographic.

No, but it is a "Brooklyn Street".

Also nearby enough that I'm interested and has an F train stop.

I rest my case.
