No. He orginally said that although the default speed limit would be lowered to 25 mph, higher speeds would remain where warranted. Then he reduced ALL speed limits on city streets by 5 mph or more so that except for a handful of streets, the speed limit is 25 mph. It was never stated that limits on arterial roadways would also be reduced to 25 mph. That is why even the council people in favor of Vision Zero objected to the lowering of the speed lit on Ocean Parkway to 25 mph. There isn't a single north south street in Brooklyn with a higher speed limit and there are no north south highways in the center of Brooklyn either.
