Hi Friends! We are reformatting the website "campaigns" pages during April 2018.
Safe Routes to School Programs
Long Island Streets serves on the Steering Committee for the Safe Routes to School program in the Long Beach School District, which serves students from the City of Long Beach as well as Island Park, Lido Beach and Point Lookout in the Town of Hempstead.
Sea Cliff Bicycle & Pedestrian Education Events
Working in partnerships with the Village of Sea Cliff Traffic & Safety Committee, NY Coalition for Transportation Safety and partners in injury prevention, we have educated school children in Sea Cliff on bicycle & pedestrian safety, improving riding skills and hands-on basic bike mechanics.
Brett's Bicycle Recycle Program
Brett's Bicycle Recycle, founded by Lisa Karrer & Deborah Porretto in memory of their brother lost in a motorcycle crash, collects new and used bicycles, skateboards, parts, etc and repairs & donates to children & teens in the Huntington community. Long Island Streets really enjoys partnering with these folks to help fit bikes to kids, do helmet and blinky light giveaways, and be on hand to encourage the kids to ride safely.
Curb Painting in Long Beach
Bombing curbs, reducing obstacles blocking visibility on our boulevards.
Spring 2016- City of long beach. We partnered w/ Eastholme Civic Association, SeabytheCity.com and residents over coffee at gentle brew, brainstormed quick fixes, best practices for our streets and landscape. This is a tiny sliver of how we could work with the LBPD & city.
