Spread This Idea


On streets along 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th Avenues and in the sidestreets bordering them.

My project idea is...

Install park-type benches on all avenues and side streets.

So that people could... 

sit when they are tired of walking. There are many older and disabled citizens who want this according to a survey a couple of years ago conducted by Heights and Hills Senior Services.

7th ave and 5th ave would be enough

Possibly in the newly reopened Park Slope Branch of the BPL, on 8th St & 6th Ave., 0.03 Kms

I would make the sidewalks safer, particularly on the side streets. There are places with literal holes in them, perfect for catching a foot and spraining or breaking a limb, as well as uneven slate.

e.g. 7 St between 5 and 6 Ave., even-numbered side, about two-thirds down the block. I would be glad to join a team to map the worst spots in the Slope that are city responsibilities (private homes), 0.12 Kms

Place 30 minute parking spots on blocks with lots of commercial activity. Spots could be monitored by kiosks with cameras that photo license plates and mail tickets to those who use the space longer

Mostly commercial streets like 5th avenue between Prospect Ave and Flatbush but I think just about any block in the neighborhood could benefit from this., 0.14 Kms
