New traffic signals for the intersection of Park Place and Carlton Avenue

Posted: December 7, 2011 - 10:11pm

The New York City Department of Transportation recently installed a traffic signal and pedestrian crossing signals at the intersection of Park Place and Carlton Avenue. The intersection had long been considered dangerous by pedestrians due to the propensity of cars turning on to Carlton from Flatbush Avenue to roll through the stop sign at Park Place, and also due to the lack of a crosswalk across Park Place east of Carlton Avenue. The latter crossing is frequently used by people headed for the B and Q subway entrance.
