New York City Street Stencils Remind Us Where Cars Have Killed Pedestrians
When pedestrian advocacy group Right of Way started drawing chalk body outlines at intersections where cars mowed down New York City pedestrians in the early ’90s, it wanted to send a message to the NYPD and to the city. “To think there was a crime committed here, and then to think about how that’s not normally considered a crime, or a tragedy even,” says Right of Way organizer Keegan Stephan.
In early August of this year, Right of Way revived its old mission. Upon request from the families of victims killed by cars, the organization walked and cycled to the locations of 12 fatal collisions, sprayed an ornate stencil of white, outstretched wings designed by artist Robyn Renee Hasty, and gave space for loved ones to grieve.

"When another unarmed black teenager is gunned down, there is something that hurts about having to put fingers to keyboard in an attempt to illuminate why another black life taken is a catastrophe, even if that murdered person had a criminal record or a history of smoking marijuana, even if that murdered person wasn’t a millionaire or college student. There is something that hurts when thinking about the possibility of being “accidentally” shot on some darkened corner, leaving a writer who never met you the task of asking the world to acknowledge your value posthumously, as it didn’t during your life."

Nearly half a century ago, with manufacturing declining and suburbs rising, he described the direction he believed urban life would eventually take: clusters of creative professionals dwelling among and reshaping the remnants of an industrial past.
