Polara's EZ Communicator Navigator APS was recently installed in 21 intersections across New York City, with plans to install at an additional 25 intersections across the five boroughs by year-end. The newest Navigator APS was installed at the intersection of 7th Avenue and 23rd Street in Manhattan, one of New York City's most dangerous intersections for pedestrians. New York City news station NY1 reported that from 2005 to 2009, 21 pedestrians had been injured at the intersection, and one had died.
At a recent press conference held at this same intersection, residents of the neighborhood and advocates of street safety applauded the ADA-compliant upgrade. A few individuals with visual impairments were also on hand to applaud the installation and encourage the city to continue their efforts to meet the needs of all pedestrians. In all, New York City has over 11,000 intersections. Installing Polara's Navigator APS would help ensure the safety of all pedestrians in New York City.
Polara's EZ Communicator Navigator APS was recently featured on Extreme Makeover Home Edition. After remodeling and upgrading the home of an individual with a visual disability, the producers of Extreme Makeover contacted the city to upgrade the nearby intersection with an Accessible Pedestrian System specifically outfitted for blind and visually impaired pedestrians.
Polara Engineering Owner John McGaffey was on hand to oversee the installation of the system and explain its features to the local citizens for whom it would be most beneficial.
