Calming New York: An Examination of Neighborhood Slow Zones
Jonas Hagen
PhD Candidate, Columbia GSAPP

Every year, there are about 60,000 traffic casualties in New York City, including over 200 traffic deaths. Many cities in Europe and the UK created safer streets by implementing area-wide traffic calming. New York City’s “Neighborhood Slow Zones” program is the first systematic area-wide traffic calming program in a major US city. This presentation examines the program in terms of environmental justice, traffic safety, and street design.
