Re: Installation of 3-way stop signs at the intersection of 23rd Street and 6th Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11215 We the undersigned request that Brooklyn Community Board #7 (CB7), and related agencies and elected officials, advocate on behalf of the residents in CB7's district, including Greenwood Heights, South park Slope, Windsor Terrace and Sunset Park, for the installation of 3-way stop signs at the intersection of 23rd Street and 6th Avenue to the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT). While there is currently a stop sign located on the south west corner of the intersection on 23rd Street, recent new construction of 716-718 23rd Street, a four-story building on the corner of 23rd Street and 6th Avenue (diminishing the sight lines along 6th Avenue), along with an increase in pedestrian and car traffic in the area, has created hazardous conditions for both pedestrians, cyclists and drivers passing through that intersection. Several car related accidents have occurred in the past 12-18 months and we are calling for the immediate remediation of the unsafe conditions at this intersection. We are recommending the installation of a 3-way stop sign system to the DOT: >One sign on the eastern approach towards 6th Avenue on 23rd Street >One sign on the southern approach towards 23rd Street on 6th Avenue >One sign on the northern approach towards 23rd Street on 6th Avenue We respectfully request the DOT complete an new traffic study of the intersection at the soonest available time period and make this intersection safe for the residents of the neighborhood and all communities within CB7.
