Issues: bike concern
96 Newkirk Ave Kingston, NY 12401, USA - Kingston
Cars are comming down Newkirk Ave. speeding, playing very loud music at all hours of the day and night and into the early mornings hours and cars are not stopping at the corners of Newkirk Ave and Maple St. They also come from Maple St. and not stop to go up Newkrik Ave.
I've seen kids come down Newkirk Ave on their bike's and one of these days someone is going to get killed. I've already had in the past and just last year, cars crashed into my gate and now into my fence. I've already asked to have the guardrail I asked to have installed, to have it extended around the corner. I was told that this will be done. I am also making videos of these problems to show if needed. Five DVD videos have been given to the police to look at, and each contains about 40 scenes.

bad intersection to begin with, but there are double parked cars and kids darting into the street on foot, bikes, and scooters as lazy parents hang out on the sidewalk and porch. My hunch is there is an illegal daycare or babysitting situation going on there and kids are spilling into the street. This needs to be addressed before one of these children is hurt.

Many street lights are out along Hurley Ave, Schwenk Drive, Clinton Avenue, Albany Avenue (near Academy Green and the traffic circle) - making it hazardous since it is very dark at 6:30 a.m. and there are many walkers, bike riders, joggers, etc. wearing dark clothing

I would love to see more effort put into making safe bike paths in and around the Rondout and other recreation areas in Kingston. Biking is free, it gives great pleasure, it's a cardio-vascular workout, and it could bring more people to areas like downtown. Our parks could use some specially designated bike paths too. Eventually would like to see this whole idea expand, but...I know, budget woes...There's other places to ride, but they are away from restaurants or stores. Rondout Harbor,Kingston,NY 12401,USA
Col Chandler Dr Kingston, NY 12401, USA - Kingston
I recently read the proposal for the new roundabout which is most likely to be installed at the intersection of Albany Ave. and Broadway in Kingston.
I think that any improvements made here will be good ones, because the intersection as it is now is antiquated and confusing to drivers who are unfamiliar with the area.
However, I do have a question about what will become of Interstate 587 (Col. Chandler Dr.)
In the proposal, it states that Interstate 587 should be changed to NY Route 587. My question is, why should it even carry the 587 designation, when it already partially has the NY Route 28 designation? Why not just rename the entire 1-mile section of Col. Chandler all Route 28?
I think it would be less confusing for motorists.
Also, in the proposal, it stated that it was being considered to re-configure Col. Chandler Dr. into a 2-lane road from the current 4 lanes and adding bicycle and pedestrian lanes.
I think this would be counterproductive, because in 20 years, this section would have to be widened again anyway, to accomodate the growth in traffic.
Let's not be penny-wise and pound-foolish about this, Kingston!! THINK LONG-TERM!!!

Kingston High School Kingston, NY 12401, USA - Kingston
My son had his Redline BMX bike stolen yesterday from over by the high school.
It is a Redline BMX bike and it is orange. There is not a lot of orange bikes
around, especially a redline. If you should see it, please e-mail me. My son saw
it after it was stolen, even got a punch in on the guy who was a lot older, but
he didn't get it back. He only had it for a few weeks, we bought it up in

There is a large pothole on Albany Avenue. It is located just over the bridge, in front of the cemetary, as if you were headed for the malls. It is a large hole and will definitely do some damage to a car or bike.

Small children often playing in the street, riding tricycles or bikes. It appears that yards are very small or that they don't have much of a yard to play in at all. I worry that one day a child will be hit by a car going.
124-126 Wrentham St Kingston, NY 12401, USA - Kingston
People need to stop running the 4 way stop at Wrentham and Savoy street. People rarely stop most times they cruise through the stop sign at 20-40mph. Busy neighborhood with people walking and children riding bikes. Most people stop while on Savoy but cars driving up or down Wrentham hardly ever stop.
47 Walnut St Kingston, NY 12401, USA - Kingston
ATV's and Dirt Bikes running the streets of Ponckhockie EVERY day and night. Some are coming from Crane Street and some coming from Gill Street area, running up and down Walnut Street and Crane Street and up Crane into the woods.
59 Witswyk Ave Kingston, NY 12401, USA - Kingston
Wiltswyk Avenue, just east of the Elmendorfer interchange (right by the abandoned "meeting hall") automobiles are using the location to meet for drug sales and to "use" their drugs.
I have encountered many people doing so, and with the warmer months approaching I am irked by the number of people choosing to get "high" where our daughter rides her bicycle and plays.
The road has in the past, been a "pullover, make a call, get your stuff and get high" road, and I have done my best to end the activity. Yet after a brief hiatus, the junkies are back.
The signs you are looking for are easy to see. A car, pulled to the side of the road, with an occupant (or 2), with their heads down (so they can see what they are rolling or injecting),
The obviousness of the activity could not be more so, as all us homeowners on the block park on our property or infront of it. We don't have young men driving up or walking up to our cars and making a transaction with us. We don't sit in our cars next to an abandoned buildings and we do not keep our heads in our laps, as we don't have a needle we are trying to fill or a blunt we are trying to roll.
My neighbors and I really would like this to end immediately, as the concern for our physical safety and that of our property is first and foremost.
It's simple. The police officers (be it NY State Troopers, UC Sheriffs or Kingston PD) know who lives on the block. They see our cars every time they drive by. When there is a car parked and occupied in front of the meeting house.....it's for no good reason. Those people need to get stopped and searched, and ARRESTED!
Crime and illicit use of narcotics will not be tolerated. NOT IN OUR BACKYARD! We ask for service and protection. We ask that it be done without us having to call and complain. We ask that it be done post-haste. We ask that our children be able to play in their backyard. And we thank you for it! Believe you me, we thank you!!!

Spring Street @ Russell St. Kingston - Kingston
Bad Situation.. I have asked my Alderman R. Senor to address the issue of placing stop signs on Spring at the foot of Russell St. Children in the area frequently come down Russell St. onto Spring Street into oncoming traffic, via bikes, skateboards, wagons etc.
There is a Stop sign on Russell, however many of the kids are to small to see it, or pay attention. Please Alderpersons and Mayor, lets protect these kids from getting hit by a car, or possibly killed.

This has been going on forever. Every summer I play softball at Kingston Point and throughout three games a night, there is constact racing between Rotary Park entrance and the light at the North St/ Delaware Ave intersection. Most cars and bikes blow through that red light as well. I have almost been hit multiple times. I support Kingston Parks and Rec and enjoy playing ball at the park. There are always crowds of people down there every night during the summer. I just hope that something can be done before we have another terrible accident.
