Gold St - John St - Plymouth St

Cars on Gold Street (open to two-way traffic) are forced to abruptly stop at a dead end at John Street. Signs indicate a left on John (one way), but cars are forced to make an awkward, dangerous, and illegal U-turn because of ConEdison's seemingly permanent closure on John Street. ConEdison should reopen John Street.

John St - Bridge St - Gold St

This stretch of John Street, between Bridge and Gold, has been entirely overtaken over by ConEdison. Pedestrians, Cyclists, and through traffic do not have access. ConEdison uses what should be public sidewalk here for their trailers and equipment storage. They use this road for employee parking. ConEdison needs to relocate their equipment, remove the fencing, and reopen this stretch.

Manhattan Bridge Bike Path - Ny-kings Cnty Boundary - Sands St

There needs to be a second entrance / exit to the York Street station of the F train. See other comments about the unsafe overcrowding that exists in the one small and ONLY entrance to this very busy station. Second subway entrance can be located in the small (underutilized ) park located along Jay street by the Manhattan Bridge pedestrian path entrance .

Jay St - York St - Prospect St

The subway entrance at York street is insufficient to handle the volume of people - many of whom are tourists. Thought needs to be give for people who actually live here and pay taxes. There are only three turnstiles and one exit door for the only entrance to the only subway station in this neighborhood which has experienced a boom in residential growth and daily tourist population. It is UNSAFE It is dangerous, the platform is narrow and often much too full of people to be safe. Often the exit is blocked and people can barely get in and out of the station. It seems often the majority of people are tourists and they are unfamiliar with turnstiles - slowing things down, huge bottleneck jams. Now the station has hired security guards to stop people from fare beating & using the exit door to enter without paying, but that means exiting the station is even more difficult as throngs of people try to use the three turnstiles to enter and exit simultaneously. We need a second subway entrance to access the other end of platform.

Plymouth St - Adams St - Washington St

This section of Plymouth - between Washington & Adams - needs to be two way so that cars can have an egress route out of the neighborhood. Also - entire neighborhood needs to be considered from the RESIDENTIAL point of view, with the needs of safety and quality of life. There are too many tourists, with busses & limos blocking our streets and polluting our air. Busses need be banned from these narrow streets.

Jay St - York St - Prospect St

Agreeing with another commenter that JAY ST needs to be two way again here to allow traffic OUT of the neighborhood , especially during heavy traffic hours

Manhattan Bridge - Kings-ny Cnty Boundary - Ramp

Under the Manhattan bridge - in the Belgian block paved space between York, Pearl, Jay and Prospect streets - There is un-authorized Parking of vehicles from nearby construction crews either working on bldgs being erected, DOT crews or Con Ed workers - it is not fair to residents who need parking and a flagrant violation of laws. Parking can be created for the tourist cars & busses that currently block the streets with non-residents who flood the neighborhood and whose vehicles block streets and whose engines idle, making unwanted noise and air pollution. These tourist vehicles AND large 18 wheel trucks are the vehicles that should be banned from the narrow streets of DUMBO and Vinegar Hill. This unauthorized parking area "perk" for construction crews and city workers who drive instead of taking public transportation can be used to the benefit of people who LIVE in Dumbo and Vinegar Hill - in all areas, please start thinking about the residents and less about the people who work here for temporary stints, or just visit here.
