The year 2007 may prove to be one of the most important years in the storied history of New York City's development.

The city says it's already on the case, but City Councilman James Oddo yesterday joined representatives of a pedestrian advocacy group on a tour of streets near Egbert Intermediate School to discuss ideas on how to make roadways safer for motorists and walkers.
The Midland Beach tour focused on Midland and Greeley avenues -- two roadways that intersect Hylan Boulevard, making them attractive to speeding motorists.
