Video Attempts to Explain Dangerous UWS Intersection

by - June 17, 2010 at 4:51 pm -

Upper West Sider David Friedman of read our story on two very serious auto-on-pedestrian crashes that occurred on Monday near the 71st Street and Amsterdam Avenue intersection and it sparked an idea.

He thinks he knows one reason that intersection is dangerous, and decided to make a video about it (he was careful to say that he’s not sure what caused Monday’s crashes). We are very, very grateful. If you ever have an inclination to do something like this, we heartily encourage it. Check it out below:

    SUPER useful — and completely on target, I’ve thought that too!

    Thanks David, thanks WSI ~

    I walk this every day, and still find myself getting caught offguard by this same walk sign issue on occasion. It’s a shame that crashes had to occur to get people buzzing about this. I hope a change is made.
