More on Fourth Ave

July 10, 2013

Here’s my favorite part of an excellent “open letter to Brooklyn Community Board 6” from Keith Williams of The Weekly Nabe:

We rarely question a doctor’s medical advice, even if it runs counter to our gut instincts. Why would we do so with respect to the flow of traffic? The professionals in the Department of Transportation have spent years studying and applying the principles of urban design and movement. There is little reason to believe they overlooked anything here – particularly after the host of public meetings that have been held on this topic.

The comparison to a doctor’s advice is great.  Sadly, sometimes community boards act a bit too much like insurance companies, denying life-saving treatment.  Let’s hope that’s not the case tonight.
