The New York City Department of Transportation installed 9 new street lights along Park Avenue in Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, and Wallabout, Brooklyn.  This was a direct result of the research and advocacy efforts of our Park Avenue Pedestrian Safety Project.

Four street lights are completely brand new installations:

  • North Portland, just south of Park Ave
  • Carlton, just south of Park Ave
  • Adelphi, just north of Park Ave
  • Park Ave, just west of Steuben

Four street light arms were added to existing lamp posts:

  • Park Ave at Carlton
  • Park Ave at Clinton
  • Park Ave at Ryerson (pictured above)
  • Park Ave at Grand

The ninth new light, on Washington at Park Ave, was added to an existing traffic light.
