Installation Of New 'Pedestrian Neckdown' On Boerum Place:

As part of the Downtown Brooklyn Traffic Calming Project, a brand new 'Pedestrian Neckdown' has just been installed at the corner of Boerum Place and Pacific Street. The purpose of these neckdowns is to "expand the sidewalk area and narrow the roadway, often at intersections, to slow turning vehicles and shorten pedestrian crossing distances."
Similar neck downs have been installed all over the neighborhood, including at the corner of Smith Street at Bergen Street.
