The most dangerous intersection in New York City?

Franklin Avenue at Atlantic Avenue in Crown Heights

 

There are probably more dangerous intersections for pedestrians in the city, but this was one of the worst that I've come across: crosswalks are not even marked, you have to get across six lanes of traffic, the median doesn't extend all the way to the pedestrian crossing area, oh and to add insult to highly probable injury the pedestrian crossing signal is out of sync.

 

Tragic accident waiting to happen...

    Atlantic Avenue was recently paved; not that it was acceptable before, and I don't see why it's still unstriped.
