Prospect Park Earth Day Action
On Thursday April 22nd, T.A.
celebrated Earth Day and the arrival of spring with a Car-Free Prospect Park
rally. The birds were buzzing and the bees singing, but motorists were also
racing through the park during the morning rush hour. Demonstrators used T.A.’s

is absolutely right—speeding cars in the park raise serious safety concerns. The

pedestrians and polluting the air. We must extend the current pilot program
year-round to make the park safer for Brooklynites.”
