Spotted At Green Street & Manhattan Avenue: Fender Bender

accident

Per witnesses the automobile on the left failed to stop at the stop sign on Green Street. Having lived on Green Street for no less than ten years I can attest that I have seen plenty of “accidents” such as this. We need either a stop light or some enforcement on this intersection. Seriously.

  2. FYI – the Environmental Impact statement from the Greenpoint Williamsburg requires a stoplight here, as part of the unavoidable impacts from the rezoning:

    “Manhattan Avenue/Green Street
    To address the proposed action’s impact to eastbound Green Street at Manhattan Avenue in the AM peak
    hour, it is proposed to install a traffic signal with a 90-second cycle length at this unsignalized
    intersection. As shown in Tables 22-2 through 22-4, with a 48-second northbound-southbound phase and
    a 42-second eastbound phase, signalizingthis intersection would fully mitigate the AM peak hour impact
    to the eastbound approach. In the AM peak hour, the eastbound approach would operate at LOS D with
    the proposed signal compared to LOS E with stop control under the proposed action. The eastbound
    approach and all other approaches would otherwise operate at LOS C or better in all periods with the
    proposed signal.”

  4. Fascinating. Given the number of collisions (between cars and bicyclists as well) I have seen here something really needs to be done. After I took this photo a man forced to turn onto Green Street almost hit a woman and her 2-3 year old son because (due to this accident) he could not see where he was going. Bad stuff.

Tell me what you're thinking...
