Streetsblog NYC: Survey Says West Side Sidewalks Unsafe and Unclear – City Must Act

June 7, 2021

Community Justice, Disability Justice, News

Streetsblog NYC recently focused on the poorly maintained and dangerous streets of west side New York City neighborhoods like Hell’s Kitchen and Chelsea. In March 2021, NYLPI joined Manhattan Community Board Four (MCB4) to conduct a survey to better understand the state of sidewalks in the city. Streetsblog NYC cites our survey, noting it highlights not only NYLPI’s but also other groups’ efforts to push city officials to take control of sidewalk maintenance. Proper and regular maintenance of these streets is paramount to ensure that sidewalks can remain a safe and usable “primary artery of transportation.”
