Tomorrow: Manhattan CB 2 Takes Up Ped Safety Fixes and Bike Corrals

The 2013 Streetsblog calendar kicks off with a slate of pedestrian safety measures and bike corrals up for discussion at Manhattan Community Board 2.

The traffic and transportation committee will be considering safety improvements for the intersection of Sixth Avenue and Canal Street, as well as a package of sidewalk extensions, daylighting, and other upgrades for the area where Varick Street converges with Carmine and Clarkson Streets. As you can see in the video from BrooklynSpoke's Doug Gordon, Holland Tunnel traffic makes this spot pretty hellish for walking.

Also on the agenda: three bike corrals that could bring the one-two punch of safer intersections and more convenient bike parking to three intersections in Greenwich Village and SoHo.

If you live or work in the area, this will be a good opportunity to start off your year in livable streets activism. The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. tomorrow at the NYU Silver Building, 32 Waverly Place, Room 401.
