Businesspeople, residents, and Town officials are brainstorming on how to fix the treacherous "triangle" in Syosset. The main intersection where Jackson Avenue and Underhill Boulevard meet, has been a point of debate and discussion by all who have passed through the area.
At a Residents for a More Beautiful Syosset's Laura Schultz addressed board members:
"I'm asking you to speak with [County Executive] Ed Mangano to arrange for the town to take over the northern part of Jackson Avenue," said Schultz to the board. "It's very dangerous, and it's unregulated."
It is because of the hazardous intersection of Jackson Avenue and Underhill Boulevard, extending north to Cold Spring Road, that Schultz asked the board not to forget about Syosset now that Jackson Avenue is repaired.
"North of the [Syosset LIRR] tracks is a free for all," said Schultz, whose personal experience of driving her child to the train for work allows her to witness the daily rush hour chaos.
What parts of the traffic signaling, signage, and pedestrian pathways could be improved? What parts need to stay? What needs to go?
