Do you have thoughts about improving the bicycle, pedestrian and
transportation environment on the Upper West Side? In conjunction with
Councilmember Gale Brewer, the Department of Transportation would like
to hear your thoughts, concerns and ideas regarding transportation
issues from West 55th to 86th Streets (PDF).

From the DOT:
The
New York City Department of Transportation is conducting a traffic and
transportation study for the area bounded by West 55th Street, West
86th Street, Central Park West and Twelfth Avenue/Henry Hudson Parkway
in the Borough of Manhattan.

The study was initiated in
response to community concerns over the growth in major real estate
developments and traffic congestion. The study will assess existing
traffic and transportation conditions in the study area and project how
future land uses may generate new trips and affect levels of congestion
in the study area. Community input will be an integral part of the
assessment process. After the study we will work with the community to
produce recommendations to improve traffic flow and safety along
corridors and at intersections, reduce congestion and improve access to
local destinations.

Gov. Hochul's "little guys" certainly have big wallets. Meanwhile, the rest of us suffer with declining subway service and buses that are slower than walking. Thanks, Kathy.
