The city has ordered the removal of a Brooklyn parking lot where a 4-year-old girl was struck and killed by a vehicle while walking with her mother.
Luz Gonzalez was hit while her mother bent down to tie her shoelace on July 1. The car was driving out of the parking lot on Wyckoff Avenue in Bushwick.
The Department of Buildings on Friday evening ordered the owner to remove all vehicles from the lot, remove the stripes from the lot and install barricades to prevent vehicles from entering.
Additional enforcement actions are pending, the city said.
Luz was the ninth child killed by a driver in Brooklyn this year, according to borough president Eric Adams.
Luz was the youngest of five children and the only daughter, according to family friends. She was on the way to her father's birthday celebration when a driver pulling out of a laundromat on Hart Street hit and killed her.
"Luz in English means light, and [her mother] named her Luz because that was the light of her eyes," Luz's godmother Fabiola Mendieta told News 4.
Vigils for Luz have been held every evening at the lot.
