The 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
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.
