Does the walk button do anything?

It depends on where you are. At intersections with actuated signal controls, the button functions as a human detector, alerting the system to the presence of a pedestrian and requesting a “WALK” signal as soon as possible. And if the pedestrian signals are in “recall” mode, pushing the button does nothing.

What does flashing red hand mean?

When the red hand starts flashing, finish crossing, but don't start. That means that the red hand — don't start crossing — now flashes longer, making people think they have plenty of time. And the reality is, often they do, but cars waiting to turn can get backed up as pedestrians nip across.
