BREAKING: An Accident On Manhattan Avenue
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
Those of you who are wondering what the police and fire department presence is about at the intersection of Eagle Street and Manhattan Avenue, I can tell you. There was a collision between a moped and automobile.
I happened upon a witness who kind enough to give me the 411. Apparently the blue car, which was headed south, made a left hand turn and the moped (which was headed north) could not stop in time. I was told the driver of the moped sustained minor injuries. If so, he (or she) was very, VERY lucky. Nonetheless, this does bring up the issue speeding on Manhattan Avenue. Anyone who lives north of Green Street will tell you that motorists are driving WAY too fast down this stretch. The intersection of Eagle Street and Manhattan Avenue needs is a traffic light. Otherwise, the next time an accident comes to pass here (and rest assured, it will) the outcome may not be as fortuitous.
