These Are NYC’s Deadliest Streets

February 6, 2014 | Andy Cush

Between 2010 and 2012, the Tri-State Transportation Campaign collected data on the deadliest streets for pedestrians across the five boroughs. Broadway topped the list in Manhattan, with nine pedestrian deaths in three years, and Second Avenue was close behind, with seven. In Queens, Woodhaven Boulevard was by far the worst, with eight deaths. Brooklyn’s Flatbush Avenue was the deadliest in that borough, with six deaths, and in the Bronx, East Gun Hill Road, Fordham Road, White Plains Road and the Grand Concourse all had four. See the full report, including statistics from New York State, New Jersey, and Connecticut, here.

“The Tri-State Transportation Campaign has long been a leading voice for street safety, and their latest report will become a rallying cry as New York City mobilizes to achieve Vision Zero,” DOT Commissioner Polly Trottenberg told the Daily News.

According to the Vision Zero Clock, a website by the advocacy group Right of Way that tracks traffic deaths under Mayor de Blasio, there have been 14 pedestrian deaths so far this year.
