Speeding along all of McGuinness. As a biker, I constantly see cars speed from a stop, or to catch a light, or just speeding. Along with narrowing the driving lanes and reducing driving lanes to one in each direction, more should be done to nudge drivers to slow down: more tree coverage in the median (potentially with a two-way bike lane), creating a physical separation or small barrier between parking lane and driving lane (more than just paint), reducing the desire to catch green lights by speeding by removing traffic signals and setting the speed limit to no more than 25mph (enforcement can easily be done by video cameras), allowing traffic to continue to flow at safe speeds with pedestrian-safe roundabouts on the far side of the Pulaski Bridge and near the BQE (which is also an extremely dangerous and complex intersection).

McGuinness Blvd is a car sewer, not the urban boulevard that it could and should be. How would we shape the right-of-way if our goal were to encourage Greenpointers to spend time on and around McGuinness? If our goal is merely to make McGuiness less hostile, that implies that "car sewer" is the default, when the default should be "neighborhood amenity."

Consider using a roundabout instead of a signal here. Drivers speed off the bridge generally, and even more to catch a signal.

McGuinness Boulevard is a two lane in each direction road that is a very important commercial thoroughfare for the entire region. This road was never designed or meant to be used by bicycle riders. There are plenty of side streets that have bicycle lanes already and are much safer for bicycle riders. Removing lanes from McGuinness Boulevard will create a traffic nightmare for the neighborhood. The boulevard will be backed up from Meeker Avenue all the way to the Pulaski Bridge and it will be almost impossible to turn onto or off of McGuinness Blvd. from any of the connecting arteries not to mention the issues it will create for the fire department on Greenpoint Avenue, and any other emergency vehicles

This section of Herbert street is where McGuiness turns into a one lane, one way residential street, with the addition of traffic from the BQE exit ramp. It is almost impossible to cross Richardson here, as cars and trucks speed off the BQE exit ramp or out from McGuiness as soon as the light on Herbert changes. Any vision as a pedestrian/car crossing is blocked by parking on both side of Herbert and it feels like you're taking a risk every time you cross. There are no stop signs from the light on Herbert until Jackson St. and cars and trucks routinely speed down the street until that point.

Please consider all of the residents in this “resists” that transportation alternatives have initiated for their own pro bike/anti car agenda in the name of safety - this will affect all residents, young, elderly, disabled, workers, businesses and families. If safety is truly the concern, adding traffic lights at both ends of the boulevard- exiting the Pulaski on to the boulevard, and entering the BQE- with more clear lanes and traffic control, will address that. Even perhaps a traffic signal in the Pulaski bride itself. Visable speed limit signs to remind drivers of the 25mph limit could also be helpful. The ideas such as of the widening the sidewalk - completely unnecessary as there is very little usage of the footpaths since there are mostly residences and not local businesses on this street, as opposed to the surrounding streets which get much more foot traffic, removing a car lane and parking would greatly affect the local residents and a larger surrounding area - more traffic - idling cars, cars looking for parking on the surrounding streets..this is a street that connects many areas Brooklyn to queens, to Manhattan, and is a necessary route as well as a coastal evacuation route and needs to have traffic flow and safety. There is a grocery store that is an essential business that serves the community on this street and need to have access to its loading bay and not sprout the rest of the traffic, as well as gas stations that need cars to be able to enter and exit.

McGuinness Blvd is not hazardous to those that pay attention when crossing the street and are mindful of their surroundings. Lives are not in danger if proper traffic laws are being followed by cyclists. It's important to leave two lanes of traffic on each side of McGuinness to prevent excessive traffic for drivers coming from the Pulaski Bridge and are going to the BQE. There are other beneficial ways that can ensure everyone's safety without these ridiculous changes being suggested. -Add solar-powered lane lights for drivers to see in case of bad weather. This will prevent cars from veering to another lane. -Ensure that the traffic lights are being used 24/7 to capture speeding -Promote Leonard Street as an alternative bike route for those that are "terrified" of McGuinness since it is rarely used -Cyclists register their mopeds and bicycles since they are means of transportation. IF cyclists have registered bicycles, they will be forced to follow traffic laws and learn to share the road instead of stating that Greenpoint "just get rid of cars". There are better ways to use the money to benefit the good of the community. There are plenty of times when the boulevard barely has any traffic and crossing the street is neither terrifying nor dangerous.

Use the additional space for *protected* bike lanes, pedestrian walkways, and to plant trees and other landscaping.

What I think McGuinness needs is a lot of green space. I'm not opposed to protected bike lanes, but I'd feel scared to cycle up and down McGuinness given its history. Let's narrow and remove automobile lanes and put in trees and other greenery that will deal with stormwater runoff! During storms, parts of McGuinness and intersecting streets get absolutely flooded! Everyone in the neighborhood loves greenery, and it will help us stay cool in the summer and sheltered from the rain.

One thing that would help the backup of eastbound Nassau traffic leading into McGuinness would be loading zones. Double parking, especially by trucks, is rampant on Nassau, and nobody is happy! Getting rid of a few parking spots so traffic becomes a bit more normal would help.

Eastbound traffic here (Nassau and McGuinness) backs up several blocks, often with large trucks, and often blocking intersections until traffic cops show up. For cyclists, the choice is either to wait behind this multi-block wall for several traffic cycles, or to squeeze between the stopped cars and the parked cars. I'm not sure what the best solution is–perhaps diversions or a bike lane or making this part of Nassau one-way.

McGuinness is a speedway. There needs to be an immediate road diet, using global best practices to reduce speed and conflict. Other cities have figured this out years ago but DOT thinks NYC is so different and special we need a year long planning process to save lives. Reduce lanes, increase turning radius, add bulbouts, daylight intersections, add bollards, add truly safe bike infrastructure. The fact that these actions aren't ready to go and deployed immediately says everything about how incompetent and car-centric this department is. You don't need to turn the community into volunteer urban planners- you need to do your job. Lives depend on it, and you are failing miserably.

McGuinness is a dangerous highway spitting the middle of a residential neighborhood. It leads directly to a major bike bridge but is basically unbikeable. There needs to be real protected bike infrastructure here. Not the joke, fake protected lanes like you've used on Grand, that are fully accessible to cars. REAL PROTECTION. Just look at what the rest of the world is doing, this isn't that hard.

dropping pin randomly for this one, but every inch of this city is terrible for novice cyclists, and for many seasoned cyclists as well, because vehicles are routinely given priority. the better and truly safer the bike lanes are, the more people will use them. they should be narrow enough that cars cannot enter them and protected by jersey barriers or steel bollards.

I personally cross McGuinness Blvd several times a day and have never had an issue with cars. I have however almost been taken out by crazy cyclists who do not follow any rules. They go faster then cars and take corners without looking. Bicycles do not belong on McGuinness and need to be treated as hazardous. McGuinness is safe and if you take out a lane it will cause so much traffic and noise/air pollution doing more harm then good

It seems to me that the meetings are set-up to give people a chance to blow off steam and this agency isn't required to respond. I'd like an answer to these questions; what can your department do for us?, do you coordinate with other agencies?, how long will this process take-think of the simplest suggestions-and give us a timeline. Is any department within the NYCDOT interested in slowly with lots of notice and organization getting rid of McGuinness Blvd.? Can your agency come up with a process that will provide off-the-street parking for residents? dedicated streets for bicyclers? for public transportation? Or will we be saddled with pointless painted lines and bike barriers no one will pay any attention to? are you able to get cops to monitor traffic? speed cameras [fyi if they are on McG they are shut off]?

As a driver in Greenpoint, it is difficult to navigate because the cyclists do not follow the traffic laws of the street. If you attend a community meeting to voice your concerns as a driver, your opinions are disregarded and ignored because you have opposing views. Parking is incredibly difficult to find throughout Greenpoint and getting rid of two lanes on McGuinness will do nothing but add excessive traffic, less parking, no guarantee for biker safety, and added air pollution. When suggested about using medians as a biker pathway, the idea was disregarded by the group representative because it went against the majority and wasn't brought to DOT attention until the driver who brought up the plan suggested it to DOT. There are other ways of making McGuinness safer however, bikers should not be allowed to ride there. Leonard St. bike paths are never being utilized though cyclists claim side streets to be "so dangerous", which is false. The Polish driving community is 100% excluded from all conversation about reducing lanes of traffic because of a language barrier that is being ignored to push the cyclist agenda. Parking is already reduced because of Citibikes, film studios, private driveways, fire hydrants, and alternate side parking. Please consider the opinions of the entire Greenpoint community as opposed to solely listening to cyclists opinions. Cyclists do not care if individuals in the working class need to use their cars to go to work, are handicapped, or are elderly.
