"No improvements have been made to Central Park West this year, and with peak tourist and bicyclist season now here, far too many people remain unacceptably endangered on New York City streets."

we love everything that you do to create more peace in NYC and the world. Our group, Families for Safe Streets, had an idea we want to share with you. What about IMAGINE SAFE STREETS with IMAGINE PEACE downtown? There are some planters still available. We would love it!

If someone gets stabbed and cops arrive on the scene to a victim, a guy holding a bloody knife and 3 witnesses, an arrest will be made. I don't know why it's handled any differently when the weapon is a car but it's gotta change.

Even though this is one of the most treacherous corridors in the Bronx, East Tremont Avenue wasn’t previously allowed to have a speed safety camera because PS 28’s entrance is on Anthony Ave.

We need to remove parking places close to intersections so that drivers can see pedestrians, particularly children, the elderly, and the disabled, and not hit them. Some drivers will oppose this b/c it means losing a few parking spaces. But those parking places have a human cost
