This is our final day in New York. What a remarkable trip we had! Everyone was all
hyped up and ready to head home to share with others what we had experienced in New York.
Over the 6 days of our stay, we met with the Department of Transportation and understood how
New York was able to lower pedestrian deaths by a remarkable 33% through Vision Zero. New
York’s Vision Zero had also started the same time as we did but was able to make much more of
a difference then we are able to in San Francisco.
We are hoping to bring the same effect back to San Francisco and implement these
preventive measures to lower all these preventable deaths in crashes. In addition, we went to
Flushing to meet with a local Asian American Empowerment group called AAFE. We saw how
they ran their youth programs and what makes them so successful. If possible, we may
implement their methods in our Youth Program too. On a happier note, we are happy to share
with our family and friends the food we tasted throughout New York along with numerous
pictures of tourist attractions like the top of the Empire State and of the Charging Bull!
