Central Park Cyclists Hit Pedestrians 35 Times This Year, Police Say

UES News - 11 hours 31 min ago
by Emily Frost --

Only one collision occurred between a car and a pedestrian, records show.

UPPER WEST SIDE — Central Park bicyclists have hit 35 people so far this year while only one person was hit by a car, a top police official said.

The lone car crash occurred on May 12 about 8 a.m. at West Drive and West 67th Street and the pedestrian suffered only a minor foot injury, according to Deputy Inspector Jessica Corey, commanding officer of the Central Park precinct.

In the 35 bike collisions, however, the crashes between pedestrians and cyclists led to two pedestrian deaths and three fractured skulls, Corey told Community Board 7 members Monday night at a meeting about Central Park street safety.

In recent months, a 59-year-old mother was killed by a cyclist along West Drive near West 62nd Street and a 75-year-old male jogger was killed by a cyclist near the East Drive Loop at East 72nd Street, sparking concern among residents about the safety of pedestrians and runners using the park's roadways.

Corey would not go into more detail about this year's crashes, nor the injuries sustained by cyclists, but she said they happened at all times of the day.

Several crashes happened in the early morning, about 6 a.m., when there's a perception that there are fewer walkers in the park, she added.

The precinct is trying to curb crashes by educating cyclists and pedestrians about the park's traffic lights and by handing out summonses to cyclists, Corey said. Officers are particularly focused on cyclists who fail to yield to pedestrians and run red lights, she said.

"We've issued more than 800 summonses [to cyclists] for the year," she said. 

But police typically don't know if a bike is speeding because judging cycle speed is difficult unless someone is recorded with a radar gun, Corey explained.

The hot spots for cyclist-pedestrian crashes include West Drive in the West 70s and near East 72nd Street along East Drive, she noted. 

Though only one car has been involved in a collision this year, Community Board 7 members said they see a car-less Central Park as a potential solution to the crashes because it would give cyclists and pedestrians each more space in their respective lanes.

"I like the idea of trying to introduce more of a separation between the users," said board member Meisha Hunter.

City Councilwoman Helen Rosenthal has proposed a bill calling for a trial car-free Central Park from June through September next year, followed by a DOT study of how that affected surrounding traffic patterns.

Chancellor Shakes Up School Leadership, Replacing 15 Superintendents

UES News - Tue, 10/21/2014 - 09:58
by Julie Shapiro, -- Danielle Tcholakian --

DOE Chancellor Carmen Fariña replaced 15 out of 42 school superintendents, officials announced.

NEW YORK — In a major leadership shakeup at the city's schools, Chancellor Carmen Fariña has replaced 15 of the city's 42 superintendents, officials said Tuesday.

Fariña announced earlier this year that Department of Education superintendents would be required to have additional qualifications, such as ten years of experience in schools, including at least three years as a principal.

Superintendents were also required to show that they had improved the schools under their watch and listened to input from the community.

All 32 community superintendents, who oversee district elementary and middle schools, and all ten high school superintendents had to reapply for their jobs and were evaluated based on the tougher standards.

Two were grandfathered in — Gale Reeves of Harlem's District 5 and Anita Skop of Park Slope's District 15 — even though they did not meet the new qualifications, DOE officials said, but others were replaced.

Seven of the existing superintendents resigned during the new review process, two retired and others found jobs elsewhere in the city, according to the Daily News, which first reported the shakeup.

"I am thrilled to welcome this group of highly qualified leaders — they have the necessary experience, knowledge and understanding of what it takes to support principals, teachers and ultimately students," Fariña said about the new hires in a statement.

"I want leaders at the helm who understand what it takes to ensure a supportive school community, and this is an exciting step forward to make sure our school system creates environments where all students and school staff will thrive."

At District 2's Community Education Council meeting Monday night, superintendent Mariano Guzman bid an emotional farewell to the principals and parents he has been working with for the past three years in the district, which runs from TriBeCa to the Upper East Side. Guzman said he will continue to work with the DOE, helping Fariña reorganize the city's public schools.

"I can’t tell you how shocked I was a few weeks ago when Carmen approached me," Guzman told a crowd of District 2 principals and parents. "She said, ‘I need you to come work with me… I need you to help me reorganize the system. I need you to help me think through what our next phase of work is.'"

Guzman will start his new job at Tweed Courthouse next week, after he helps incoming District 2 superintendent Bonnie Laboy adjust to the position.

The new superintendents are:

District 2 - Bonnie LaboyDistrict 6 – Manuel RamirezDistrict 8 – Karen AmesDistrict 9 – Leticia Rodriquez RosarioDistrict 11 – Maria LopezDistrict 12 – Rafaela EspinalDistrict 17 – Clarence EllisDistrict 22 – Julia BoveDistrict 26 – Danielle GiuntaDistrict 27 – Mary BartonDistrict 28 – Mabel Muniz-SaduyDistrict 31 – Anthony LodicoHigh School – Michael PrayorHigh School – Fred WalshTransfer High School – LaShawn Robinson
