Description

There currently is no crosswalk anywhere along Brown Street, so pedestrians are forced to cross anywhere they feel like it. At the Common end of Brown, the only crosswalk is in front of the Conant statue, but because of the statue for someone to use the crosswalk to cross Brown you have to walk all the way in front of the Witch Museum, which doesn't make sense because it's so far out of the way. There currently is no way to cross Brown safely, especially if you want to use the John Ward House alley to go to the PEM, or to go to the parking garage or visitor center on New Liberty St.
Putting a crosswalk at Kimball Court would allow for easy tourist and resident crossing, especially to go to the Common. Putting a crosswalk at New Liberty St would allow for easy tourist and resident crossing as well, especially to the Essex Pedestrial Mall.
