Brooklyn Retail Corridors, 2003

Brooklyn Retail CorridorsThe Brooklyn Retail Corridors project, jointly sponsored by the New York City Departments of City Planning and Transportation, examines traffic and pedestrian congestion and safety issues in four retail corridors in the borough of Brooklyn. Three technical memorandums documenting project milestones were released previously.

Recent planning studies and environmental impact statements relevant to the four study areas were reviewed in Technical Memorandum 1. The information gathered was used to better inform this study’s data collection effort and recommendations from previous studies were re-examined for relevance under current conditions. Existing conditions were analyzed in Technical Memorandum 2 and included information on land use, zoning, transit, demographics, employment trends, journey-to-work, accidents, signal timing, on- and off-street parking, and the streetscape. A traffic and pedestrian impact analysis was performed based on problems and opportunities identified in Technical Memorandum 3.

The results of the analysis helped shape solutions for better management of the traffic and pedestrian networks. This technical memorandum, Technical Memorandum 4, recommends strategies for managing the many challenges that each study area faces on a daily basis.

The Brooklyn Retail Corridors report is available as one complete document (PDF Document 4.6 MB) or in parts in PDF format:
