The Central Harlem Senior
This was the first of three
workshops to re-design 135th Street to make it safer for seniors, the disabled
and all street users. After a discussion of general transportation issues a
group including ten seniors from the Central Harlem Senior Citizenís Coalition,
Roberta Washington Architects and Transportation Alternatives staff went on a
walking tour. The goal of the first workshop was to identify real-world problems
on the streets and sidewalks and proposing solutions. The second workshop will
illustrate and prioritize solutions. In the final session the group will present
the workshop findings to a larger group of seniors and key transportation
decision makers and to call for implementation of the identified solutions.
