On-going gridlock in North Park Slope, particuarly on 6th Avenue from Sterling Place to Flatbush Avenue

6th Avenue between Sterling Place and Flatbush Avenue, North Park Slope
November 3, 2011 - 10:04am

I live at the corner of Prospect Place and 6th Avenue in North Park Slope. Since 2009 my neighbors and I in North Park Slope have noticed a significant increase in traffic on 6th Avenue as well Prospect Pl, especially during the morning and evening rush hours. Many mornings there are gridlock conditions from Sterling Place to Flatbush on 6th Avenue, creating air pollution, noise from horns, and dangerous pedestrian conditions. My oldest child attends PS282 on 6th Avenue and Lincoln and we now frequently have to wind our way through intersections blocked by gridlocked traffic that is "blocking the box."
