NYC DOT installed “daylighting” regulations at seven locations along Park Avenue (Brooklyn).  Daylighting removes one parking space at the approach to an intersection and gives drivers/pedestrians a better view of oncoming traffic or crossing pedestrians.

Daylighting was installed at the following locations:

  • Westbound Park Avenue at the approach to North Oxford Street.
  • Eastbound Park Avenue at the approach to Waverly Avenue.
  • Westbound Park Avenue at the approach to Waverly Avenue.
  • Eastbound Park Avenue at the approach to Ryerson Street (pictured above and below).
  • Westbound Park Avenue at the approach to Grand Avenue.
  • Eastbound Park Avenue at the approach to Grand Avenue
  • Eastbound Park Avenue at the approach to Steuben Street.

This change was requested by MARP as a follow-up to the Park Avenue Pedestrian Safety Plan.
