Be careful walking on Broadway in Manhattan as a new study says it's the city's deadliest street.

The report by the non-profit Tri-State Transportation Campaign says there were 420 pedestrians killed on city streets from 2010 to 2012.

Broadway had the most with nine fatalities.

Woodhaven Boulevard in Queens placed second with eight pedestrians killed over the same period.

Second Avenue ranked third with seven.

But the report shows Brooklyn's streets are the most dangerous overall, with more than 120 pedestrians killed in car accidents.

Last month, Mayor Bill de Blasio kicked off his "Vision Zero" campaign to reduce the number of pedestrian deaths in the city to zero within the next decade.
