Queens councilman requests DOT install pedestrian ramp at Ridgewood intersection


Councilman Robert Holden penned a letter last week requesting the city’s Department of Transportation (DOT) install a pedestrian ramp at the intersection of Stanhope Street and Fairview Avenue in Ridgewood in an effort to make it safer for elderly pedestrians to cross.

“The recent installation of crosswalks and stop signs has made the intersection safer to cross,” Holden wrote in a letter to the DOT. “However, it remains inaccessible to aging New Yorkers and persons with disabilities. Residents anticipating this change will still have trouble crossing the street unless a cut is made in the curb.”
