The neighborhoods of Prospect Heights, Crown Heights, Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, downtown Brooklyn, Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Red Hook, Northern Park Slope and Brooklyn Heights face significant transportation challenges. Existing traffic and parking congestion, demands on transit service and dangerous roads for cyclists and pedestrians already pose hurdles for residents, businesses and the environment. The upcoming completion the Barclay’s Center at Atlantic Yards will further compound these challenges. The BK Gateway Transportation Workshop will lay the groundwork for developing community driven solutions to the transportation issues facing the area.

  • Discuss transportation issues affecting your neighborhood
  • Share ideas with transportation experts
  • Learn about strategies to increase pedestrian and cyclist safety, reduce congestion, and improve transit
  • Help develop a plan for the future of transportation and transit in our community
