BRONX, NEW YORK CITY — Whether people call it the “Boulevard of Death” or the Champs-Élysées of the Bronx, Queens Boulevard is an unavoidable main artery for the pedestrians, cyclists and motorists that live in the neighborhood.
In 2014, a report by the Tri-State Transportation Campaign determined that government must do something to make this and other key roads for high pedestrian and cyclist fatalities “less lethal and more livable.1”
Apparently, the New York City Department of Transportation has done so. According to Streetfilms.org, which produces films “showing how smart transportation design and policy can result in better places to live, work and play,” the $100 million changes are “wondrous.”
