    I’d like to see a second Five Guys location, just so I can go to each in sequence during the course of a lunch hour.

    There are no bushes on the median, at least presently. Very little obstructs the ability of left-turning vehicles to see pedestrians in the crosswalk. It’s just aggressive drivers seeing an opening in traffic first and looking for pedestrians second.

    Though there aren’t any bushes there (at least presently), agree that a thorough review is needed, and I’ll be reaching out to Squadron as a first step.

    National Grid has been a British company since its formation, when electricity generation and transmission was privatized in 1990.

    I meant that Brooklyn Union Gas Company was bought by them several years ago, hence the name change.

    We’e all effing doomed… Loudspeakers? Violation of the Parks Dept. “Quiet Rules” for the Promenade.

    If I were there I would have vociferously told them *not* to take a helicopter ride, lest they anger the natives.

  • Andrew Porter

    Well, that was fast. And really annoying:

    Details: Loud Music/Party. Your Service Request was closed. The Police Department responded to the complaint and determined that police action was not necessary.

    Sure, because it happened yesterday, and was neither “loud music” nor a “party.”

    What Diesel and others are trying to illustrate is the bushes (yes they’re there) on the Cadman Plaza median just north of Clark St, obscure drives view of oncoming cars (not pedestrians) while making a left turn from northbound Cadman onto Clark. This leads to distracting drivers and inciting them to make the turn as quickly as possible to avoid getting hit by a southbound vehicle, that they may not be able to see. It is a bad intersection, a turn signal would be a big help.

    (no, they’re not, but i’m over trying to argue this point)

    My original post was not to diagnose why this is a bad intersection (we all quickly agreed it is), but to figure out how to get some resolution, hoping that others in the neighborhood who have raised issues like this with local pols/agencies could lend some insight. So, if you have something to offer besides mild condescension on my eyesight and my reading comprehension skills, I’m all ears.
