This Week: Rally for Safe Streets on Staten Island’s North Shore
With major development projects slated for the north shore of Staten Island, activists are pressing the city to reimagine Richmond Terrace, where more than two hundred people have been injured in traffic since 2012, as a safe street for walking and biking. A rally to “Complete the Terrace” highlights the slate of events on the calendar this week.
