Atlantic Avenue
The streetscape elements on Atlantic Avenue should be supplemented and unified to enhance the area’s historic identity.  A unified streetscape identity-- including trees, lighting, and sidewalk paving--is also needed along Livingston, Schermerhorn and Court streets, and the lighting and median improvements installed on Adams Street in the 1990’s should be extended south to Boerum Place. 

The portion of Atlantic Avenue near the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway should be enhanced to visually strengthen Atlantic Avenue as a major arterial gateway and to improve pedestrian safety and connections, by using creative lighting and signage at the BQE underpass.  North-south connections should also be improved for pedestrians in Boerum Hill.  Streetscape improvements along Smith, Hoyt and Bond streets would improve visual connections, and improved crossing treatments at Atlantic Avenue would improve safety.
