GREENPOINT - The Department of Transportation has announced that a street in Greenpoint will be the third of 25 arterial roads in New York City to become a slow zone and have its speed reduced.
McGuinness Boulevard was chosen after a traffic study revealed that more than 60 percent of drivers speed on the road. Four people, including three pedestrians, have been killed on McGuinness Boulevard in recent years.
The road's speed limit will be reduced from 30 to 25 mph. The DOT says new speed signs will be put up on May 12.
