Willowtown Association wants to block area where Joralemon & Furman streets meet due to pedestrian safety concerns.

BROOKLYN - Residents who live near Brooklyn Bridge Park want to block off an area where Joralemon and Furman streets meet due to concerns about pedestrian safety.

The one-way cobblestone street connects the Brooklyn Heights neighborhood directly with the park.

The Willowtown Association and other neighbors say many cars speed through the residential area, and as the weather warms, they are concerned about accidents.
