the “don’t block the box” rule (box on the intersection) should be strictly enforced. Allow people to cross there.

There should be visible, decent police presence at that corner (on the south side) at rush hour. During early evening or heavy traffic, I’ve had trouble getting across Eastern Parkway there. The foot traffic can be extremely heavy, as well, making it tough to cross the street. One time, an angry man started yelling and kicking my wheelie suitcase when his bike got stuck in the little wheels. Another time, a woman pushed against me as I was walking and wouldn’t stop, and I was afraid she’d push me down. For future, I’m considering walking from Utica to Schenectady on Union or President St. to avoid the problems there, even though it’s out of my way.
