Yet another component of the Delancey Street safety plan is now in effect.  That of the left turn from southbound Essex Street.

This intersection is often quoted as one of the most dangerous in all the Five Boroughs, boasting upwards of 500 motor vehicle accidents in the last dozen years. As of this week, however, the DOT installed a new “no left turn” sign above the intersection, and placed a flashing reminder of same at curbside. Motorists looking to cross the bridge from this direction must take the second left onto Broome Street, through the neighborhood.

Although, someone should definitely inform the DOT how to properly spell Delancey. There’s a second “E,” for crying out loud!
