41 Ave - 12 St - 21 St

Trucks need to access 41st Avene in order to make it onto the Queensboro Bridge, DO NOT restrict a left turn at that location it will force all trucks onto Crescent where there is a bike lane.

The Q69 snarls in traffic on this corridor. I believe in any and all improvements to give the bus priority.

There is nothing unsafe here. Come and sit here at either bus stop and see for yourself. You’ll also see that the buses are running on time.

I live here facing 21St Street for OVER 60 YEARS and the traffic moves smoothly, there is drag racing, or any of the other things posted. This is part of an agenda by the failed Mayor, the DOT and outsider community advocates to force 30 miles of bus lanes on residents AGAINST their wishes. See Merrick, Jamaica, Queens Blvd..etc. for proof. All done against the wishes of the ACTUAL community residents. This needs to be stopped.

crosswalk here for easier access to the bus stop; i see lots of people crossing here it is unsafe

Cars often illegally parked in the painted triangle between Astoria Blvd and 27th Ave. Suggest pedestrianizing and blocking off so people can't make U-turns here.

Bus wait times are extremely long here.

Body shop is always blocking the sidewalk and we cannot cross with wheelchairs or strollers. Makes it dangerous for road users too. I would propose closing and pedestrianizing the segment of Newtown between 21st and the turnoff from Newtown to Astoria Blvd.

Many fast and dangerous U-turns from drivers heading East on Astoria blvd west onto 27th Ave. I suggest extending the curb and creating a proper turn from Astoria to 27th Ave. In other words, drivers on Astoria Blvd heading East would turn left on Astoria Blvd and Astoria Blvd heading West would turn right onto 27th Ave. Like this https://www.adamfishercox.com/_projects/safe-astoria/ Same treatment on the East side of 21st St with Newtown Ave.

There is no crosswalk to access the triangle formed by 18th St, Astoria Blvd, and 27th Ave. There are many young children crossing with parents at this spot in particular. We need a STOP sign and a crosswalk here. I would suggest having a stop sign on 27th Ave on both sides of 18th St. It feels very dangerous and I worry about drivers running over kids that are obscured behind parked cars.
