Speed Bumps To Slow Down East 19th Street

Signs went up last week for speed bumps along East 19th Street between Avenue Y and Avenue Z, though the bumps have not yet been installed. Presumably it’s to stop speeders from zooming around the school – but no signs have been installed between Avenue X and Avenue Y, where P.S. 254 is. We tried to get in touch with officials to get more information, but haven’t yet received a response. We’ll let you know what’s going on when we find out more.

UPDATE (1:35 p.m.): We just heard from Theresa Scavo, chair of Community Board 15. It appears as if parents and the school made the request, sometime in 2008 or 2009, because of speeders using this stretch of East 19th Street to cut down from Avenue Z.
