The local community board is asking locals to comment on the redesign of West End Avenue, which was completed last year in an attempt to make that avenue safer.
Since then, we’ve heard positive and negative comments about the avenue, which now has one lane in each direction, more turning lanes, and four pedestrian islands between 72nd and 106th street. The questionnaire addresses how the changes affect pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers. The results will be shared with the community and the city.
Neighborhood in the Nineties and others have argued that the West End changes don’t go far enough to curb aggressive driving, in part because the city needs to do more to curb aggressive drivers coming off of the Henry Hudson Parkway.
The survey is here and must be completed by 11:59 p.m. on March 31. It should take about 7 minutes to complete.
