Greenpoint Hit-and-Run Victim Dies

Neil Chamberlain, 28, was hit by a car crossing McGuinness on Calyer as he was walking in the crosswalk. The driver didn’t stop.

Local activists say that the McGuinness corridor is one of the most dangerous in Brooklyn. “We’ve been close to begging people to do some sort of traffic calming,” said Ryan Kuonen, an organizer with Neighbors Allied for Good Growth, a North Brooklyn community organization. “It’s a racetrack.”

(BTW – NAG has taken matters into its own hands, working with Transportation Alternatives to document traffic conditions on McGuinness.)
