New York City’s Most Dangerous Intersections

Posted on Feb 27, 2011

A recent study found that some of New York City's busiest and most congested intersections are also the city's most dangerous intersections. The study released by the Tri-State Transportation Campaign found that the most dangerous street in the City is Broadway, where 18 people died during the survey period. Eleven of the Broadway fatalities occurred in Manhattan and the remaining seven occurred in the Bronx.

Other dangerous roads in New York City included Seventh Avenue, West Side Highway, Kings Highway, Ocean Parkway in Brooklyn, Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, and the Grand Concourse in the Bronx. Queens Boulevard, which is often considered one of New York City's most dangerous streets, was not included on the list of the City's most dangerous roads, though it saw at least five fatalities during the survey period.

Many of the fatalities that occurred on these roads were New York City pedestrian accidents. The reasons for the fatalities included both negligent drivers and distracted pedestrians. The study's authors are encouraging New York City pedestrians not to text and walk and not to listen to music too loudly while walking because the results can be catastrophic.

We extend our condolences to all those who have lost loved ones in New York City accidents, and we hope that the study improves safety on some of the City's most dangerous streets.
