Tell Your Prospective Residents: City Safer for Pedestrians

Developers eager to keep young families living in New York City have a new fact to share with their prospective residents: The City is getting much safer for pedestrians, including young moms with strollers and hipster bicyclists.

The first six months of 2017 had the fewest traffic fatalities ever in New York. “We have seen continued and consistent progress, with traffic fatalities on the decline for three-and-a-half-years, strongly countering national trends,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Developers continue to build new residential towers along some of the City’s busiest streets, in places like Downtown Brooklyn and Manhattan’s Far West Side. But the City is also redesigning streets and crosswalks to be safer, and upping the enforcement of traffic laws through its “Vision Zero” plan to cut traffic deaths to zero.
