Ironbound Business Improvement District Joins Forces with the Newark Police Department to Promote Pedestrian Safety

The Ironbound Business Improvement District (IBID) has purchased six pedestrian crosswalk safety signs in cooperation with the Newark Police Department to emphasize pedestrian safety as we head into the busy summer months. The signs will be posted at Wilson Ave / Ann Street, New York Avenue / Lang Street, New York Avenue / Ann Street, Ferry Street / Alyea Street, Patterson Street/ Alyea Street and Elm Street / Jefferson Street, in addition to other signs posted throughout the Ironbound District and around the city.

“The State of New Jersey, the City of Newark and the Ironbound District have all been in the spotlight for the high number of crashes involving motor vehicles and pedestrians,” noted Seth A. Grossman, the IBID’s Executive Director. “These new signs serve as tangible reminders of the responsibilities of both motorists and pedestrians to help keep our streets safe, and this investment in support of the efforts of the Newark PD are just one more example of our commitment to the people who live, work and visit the Ironbound District,” he concluded.
