WHO: NYS Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) will be joined by NYC Public Advocate Tish James, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, Councilmembers Mark Treyger, Chaim Deutsch and David Greenfield, Assemblyman-elect Robert Carroll and community leaders.
WHERE: Corner of Avenue J and Ocean Parkway
WHEN: SUNDAY, DECEMBER 4 at 11:15 a.m.
WHAT: Assemblyman Hikind will host a “Save Ocean Parkway” rally this Sunday with fellow elected officials and hundreds of outraged community members in an effort to prevent disastrous traffic changes from being implemented along Ocean Parkway. The changes include eliminating right turns from Ocean Parkway onto Avenues J, P and Kings Highway, as well as eliminating left turns on other avenues. Motorists will instead be forced down service roads in order to make a right at the intersection, creating havoc, frustration and confusion along the major thoroughfare. If implemented, the traffic changes could pose a major threat to the safety of hundreds of motorists, children and senior citizens who live adjacent to Ocean Parkway.
