Campaign History

This wide street encourages cars and trucks to speed through the densely-populated neighborhoods of Long Island City and Astoria.

In the last decade, drivers killed seven pedestrians and bicyclists, and injured dozens more on 21st Street. From July 2012 to July 2015 alone, 410 people were injured and two where killed.

T.A.'s Queens Activist Committee is calling for a Complete Street on 21st Street, which would include a comprehensive redesign to make the street safer for all road users. These improvements will save lives, boost local business and dramatically improve quality of life along the corridor.
