Community Board 5 announced that the new traffic light at Grandview Avenue and Amory Court is now operational after it was installed by the city’s Department of Transportation (DOT) upon the board’s request. 

“There’s a lot of traffic on Grandview Avenue in that area between Metropolitan Avenue and Stanhope Steet, [and] because of that, it’s very hard for pedestrians to cross Grandview Avenue,” Community Board 5 District Manager Gary Giordano said. “This is especially true for children often escorted by their parents who were going to the school on Metropolitan Avenue; they need a safe place to be able to cross.”
