Dear Mayor Bloomberg:
I want to thank you for all that you have done to fix and improve Prospect Park West.
The Prospect Park West Bicycle Path and Traffic Calming project has reduced motor vehicle speeding. It has made pedestrian crossings less dangerous. And it has given cyclists, young and old, safe access to Prospect Park and other neighborhood destinations.
I want to thank your administration for heeding the call from Park Slope Neighbors, Brooklyn Community Board Six, the Park Slope Civic Council, the Grand Army Plaza Coalition, Transportation Alternatives and thousands of residents and Prospect Park users to make Prospect Park West a safer and more accessible street for all users. The multi-year process to improve Prospect Park West was a great example of collaboration between community groups and city government.
I want you to know that this project is overwhelmingly popular and appreciated in our community. I invite you to visit Prospect Park West on a sunny weekend day this spring to see how beautifully this street now functions.
