DNAInfo is running a story on the recent pedestrian deaths on the Broadway Corridor (Broadway between Flushing and Fulton).
Since this area is where two separate grid systems meet, it makes for odd angles for cars to turn on and pedestrians / cyclists to cross.
Add to that that it runs underneath the elevated J tracks, leading to reduced visibility due to the columns holding the tracks up. And the dimmer lighting as a result.
Add to that the crosswalk/road paint is non-existent and fading in spots.
Add to that the wildness of the drivers - it's a high traffic area, and there are sharp turns, speeding through red lights, etc.
It would be great to see some attention from the city to the problem. The NYPD are talking about increased enforcement of traffic in the area, but that seems like just part of the problem.
