Remember the last time you ran across Hamilton Ave fearing for your life? Was it this morning? The intersection at Hamilton Avenue is a crucial entryway to Red Hook - and we all deserve an upgrade. This was the topic of a research project in 2016 for a group of RHI Youth Researchers who studied the issue of safety at Hamilton Avenue. The team interviewed 110 residents about their experiences in crossing the intersection and found major safety issues including not enough time to cross the street and cars turning illegally. The study also found issues of poor lighting, unclean conditions, and sidewalks in disrepair.
Over the past few weeks, as the topic of Brooklyn street safety has been happening in response to the tragedy in Park Slope, we've been promoting the study to highlight our own major street safety issues here on Hamilton Ave.
The Borough President Eric Adams heard about the study and will be joining Youth Researchers at the intersection for a rally to call for safety improvements. The rally will be part of the BP's "Bike to Work" ride to Brooklyn Borough Hall on April 23rd.
We will gather at the intersection at 9:00am with "dream Hamilton Avenue" artwork and signs and rally until about 9:30am. Join us in demanding safety improvements for Red Hook's main pathway in and out of the community!
Please RSVP to the invite if you can make it - thanks! More info to come on a "pizza art party" to prepare for this event.
