Greenburgh supervisor dares NY officials to walk ‘dangerous’ roadwayPosted: Updated:
Greenburgh town officials are daring New York traffic authorities to see firsthand what it's like to walk or bike along a busy state-owned street.
For years, Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner has been lobbying New York to build a sidewalk on West Hartsdale Avenue in Hartsdale.
The stretch of West Hartsdale, from Secor Road to Central Avenue, is bordered by hundreds of homes and three schools.
Feiner says he’s invited state officials for a walking tour of the street, where there is no sidewalk and the shoulder does not exist in some areas.
“Everyone's on notice that this is dangerous. It could be cheaper to build a sidewalk than the liability,” Feiner told News 12.
Just this week, the state agreed to investigate the roadway.
