Protest Today at 6:30 p.m.

Spurred in part by the recent traffic fatality of Janett Ramos, the Red Hook Civic Association, the Red Hook Lions, Groups Against Garbage and the Beard Street Association will be demonstrating in Red Hook today, at Van Brunt and Wolcott streets, at 6:30 p.m.

According to the flyer, Van Brunt Street has the largest stretch of unprotected intersections in the city; ever since the Fairway grocery store opened in May, area residents have been complaining about the increased traffic and the D.O.T.’s lack of action to enact traffic-calmiing measures.

The D.O.T.–as reported earlier–is waiting until fall to conduct a study.
