Concerning the NY Waterway bus that hit a cyclist on the Hudson River Greenway recently, I received a letter from Noah Budnick Deputy Director of Transportation Alternatives. He wrote:

Thanks for checking in. In fact, the cyclist’s father called me last week to get legal advice. He said that his daughter is doing ok, all things considered. I believe she broke her collar bone (not 100% sure) and scraped up her legs pretty bad.

NY Waterway
460 12th Avenue
New York, NY 10018
