Tear down the BQE and turn Meeker into a Boulevard. This highway has destroyed the neighborhoods around it. It has divided them and lowered the quality of life. So many trucks pass through, emitting pollutants, and the noise is intolerable. People don't want to go around the neighborhoods because of the menace that it is. Follow the Sheridan Expressway removal in the Bronx and tear down the BQE!

Humboldt Street is a residential street, not a truck route, but used by trucks as a shortcut. We need to direct trucks off of this ramp so they don't endanger us on our streets.

Please install a protected Bike Path under the BQE elevated span! Let's get this done well before the K-bridge bike path is built.

A fitness center under the BQE would be amazing and utilize this space with low maintenance.

Drivers here constantly don't yield to pedestrians because they still think it's a highway.

This is a frightening spot to cross on bike or on foot. Drivers don't respect!

Ideally, we'd have congestion pricing, and better freight management, which would give us the opportunity to tear down the BQE and return it to a street-level boulevard. I know these ideas are out of the scope of this project, but it's important to provide a forward-thinking vision. We can choose the world we want to live in.

There's an awesome opportunity to turn a lot of the space into a pedestrian plaza, green space, public gathering space and to include art work and lighting to make this an accessible asset for all of North Brooklyn!

Meeker Ave under the BQE should have a protected bike path to connect the imminent Kosciuszko Bridge bike path to what should be a protected bike path on Metropolitan Avenue.

Metropolitan Ave under the BQE needs a protected bike path to ensure that cyclists going east-west can safely pass through this very dangerous intersection. Please consider jersey barriers to divide motor and cycle traffic.

Do you want to show us the area in StreetView before submitting?
