Pedestrian safety is of the utmost concern to the Lincoln Square BID, which is why last June we held a public workshop in partnership with the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) and Community Board 7 to discuss the 65th Street bowtie area. Tonight at 7:00pm, DOT will propose major pedestrian safety improvements in Lincoln Square at Community Board 7's Transportation Committee. It's important that all stakeholders weigh in to make sure your voices are heard.
Community Board 7's office is located at 250 W. 87th Street between Broadway and West End Avenue. For questions contact Nina Haiman at email@example.com or (212) 839-6244. Click here to download a flyer for the meeting.
