From The New York Shitty Inbox: More Fun On McGuinness
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
While a couple of weeks old, I feel compelled to pass them along as this intersection (and McGuinness Boulevard in general) has long been problematic. The person who took these photographs writes:
Last week, I saw more evidence of what everybody knows — reckless drivers continue to make McGuinness Boulevard a dangerous and dysfunctional street.
From I can tell, on Tuesday (Jan 24), at least two drivers hit each others’ cars at the intersection of McGuinness Blvd and Huron St, sending one car spinning into Huron St, where it smashed into a parked car (pictured) and ended up facing backwards. The other car ended up further up McGuinness in the direction of Green Street. Car parts littered the street after the crash. As you can see, the crash had some serious force, leading me to believe that at least one of the cars was speeding.
Neighborhood kids often play on the corner, but thankfully nobody seemed to have been injured, though I don’t know about the drivers.
