StreetFilm: The Street Memorial Project
Nick Whitaker’s latest effort for StreetFilms is about the Street Memorial Project, a joint effort from Visual Resistance, Transportation Alternatives, and Time’s Up! which was established to honor pedestrians killed on NYC streets. The project is an outgrowth of the Ghost Bike movement. A plaque is usually placed at the site indicating the date of the fatality, manner of death, and age of the victim.
Ryan Nuckel of Visual Resistance says, "I’d like to see the need for to really dwindle to nothing, but that is not going to happen until there are changes on the streets of the city."
