Greenpoint's McGuinness Boulevard: "Death Boulevard"

Fast-track installing speed and security cameras on McGuinness Boulevard.

Why is this important?

A little over two weeks ago, I was hit by a car while crossing Greenpoint's McGuinness Boulevard en route home. Last night, a friend shared a photograph online of ambulances parked on McGuinness where a pedestrian had been struck and killed by two cars -- just two blocks from where I had been hit. I was very lucky. 32-year-old Nicole Detweiler was not. With nearby schools, increases to Greenpoint's population, and cyclists, McGuinness Boulevard needs speed and security cameras to be installed as soon as possible to hold speeding drivers accountable for their dangerous actions.
