The city’s Department of Transportation on Monday unveiled pedestrian safety improvements at the intersection of Seventh Avenue and West Fourth Street, a notoriously dangerous crossing. Among the improvements are expanded pedestrian space, expanded concrete triangle at the Christopher Street subway entrance and a new crosswalk. The intersection, where Christopher and Grove Streets also meet, is a so-called Vision Zero Priority Area. It ranked in the top 1 percent of Manhattan intersections for people killed or severely injured from 2009-2013, according to the agency.
