The corner of 57th Street and Woodside Avenue has been a dangerous spot for Woodside residents.
It was the site of a fatal incident last year, and at least a dozen people have been injured here over the past few years.
After a concerted push by community board leaders, elected officials and school administrators, the Department of Transportation has finally installed an all-way stop sign at the intersection.
As you know, this corner is not only near St. Sebastian’s Catholic Academy, but PS 11, Doughboy Park and other schools nearby. Cars often use 57th Street to cut through Woodside down from Queens Boulevard.
Thanks to advocacy from residents, this intersection will be a little safer for everyone to cross.
