Description

The MTA is creating a huge hazard on 10th Avenue. They have cordoned off the east sidewalk entirely for equipment to build the subway extension. However, this neighborhood has nightly Art receptions. Patrons are forced to walk north on the street itself--facing traffic at night--in order to get from 25th to 26th st. Many of these pedestrians are coming from a gallery where alcohol was served. It's only a matter of time before there's a fatality. Most egregious is that it's clearly visible that the space cordoned off is not being used at all.
The MTA has a responsibility to provide safe passage on the east side of 10th Avenue from 25th to 26th Street
