Bay Ridge, Crown Heights, Downtown Brooklyn and Prospect-Lefferts Gardens are the Brooklyn neighborhoods containing “hotspots” in which cyclists complain the most about vehicles blocking bike lanes. The numbers come from 311 complaint data between Sept. 4, 2017 and Sept. 4, 2018, according to Curbed.

“To qualify as a hotspot, an area must have had 25 complaints within an 82-foot radius,” Curbed reported.

In Bay Ridge, the area around 220 and 221 72nd St. was responsible for 94 complaints. In Downtown Brooklyn, the area around Smith and Fulton streets registered 38 complaints, and the area around Jay and Chapel streets produced 36 complaints. In Crown Heights, the area around 900 Bergen St. garnered 30 complaints; and in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, the area around 115 and 122 Lincoln Road was responsible for 28 complaints. The numbers were in a report posted on, a real estate website.
