Send Some Holiday Cheer to NYC Bike Planners [Updated]
Here’s a chance to send some positive reinforcement to the folks who cope with the incessant griping of the SoHo gentry, Williamsburg car owners, Council member Alan Gerson, and others who want to roll back and delay the strides New York City is taking to make streets safer for biking.
A group of cyclists started this petition to thank the planners at DOT for additions to the bike network like Grand Street’s parking protected lane (right). I’ll be adding my name to the list before I head home to light the menorah tonight.
Update: In related news, TA is gathering e-signatures to show support for the Kent Avenue bike lane, countering an opposition that has enlisted local pols — including Council members Yassky and Reyna — to sign a letter calling for space to be given back to parking.
