Corey Johnson, Council District 3, Manhattan
As the youngest Community Board chairperson in New York City, Corey Johnson has pushed to improve street safety throughout his district. He supports increased deployment of speed cameras, and is a strong advocate for better NYPD enforcement and stiffer penalties for dangerous drivers. Johnson has committed to address the intersection of 42nd Street and 8th Avenue, the most dangerous in Manhattan for pedestrians. He wants dedicated bus lanes on Dyer Avenue to channel commuter buses away from pedestrians, and on 11th Avenue to allow for creation of a new MTA bus route. Johnson also supports the creation of a separated east-west connector between the 8th Avenue bike path and Amsterdam Avenue in the 50s, as well as construction of a second 7-line subway station on the far West side.
