Atlantic Avenue

Concerned residents and community organizations rallied together at the intersection of Atlantic Avenue and Bond Street in Brooklyn to raise awareness about recent traffic-related accidents and fatalities in the area. Many that participated live in Brooklyn's Boerum Hill neighborhood, and are lobbying the Department of Transportation for more sensible and safe street design. They are also calling for the NYPD to be more vigilant in enforcing speeding laws, urging their increased awareness as plans for the Atlantic Yards development move forward.
