Mayor Bill de Blasio, accompanied by his wife Chirlane McCray, were spotted in Park Slope just one block away from where 1yr old Joshua Lew and 4yr old Abigail Blumenstein were struck and killed by a 44yr old woman driving a white Volvo on 9th Street at 5th Avenue in Brooklyn.
Mayor de Blasio first had breakfast with his wife inside of the Colson Patisserie before heading to the gym across the street, where he spoke with a group of protesters before proceeding to his workout.
The Protesters, including Paul Steely White from the group Transportation Alternatives, voiced their concerns for the safety of pedestrians and cyclists and pressed the Mayor for meaningful solutions.
