Eyes on the Street: Stone Bike Lane in LIC


A reader sent in this photo earlier in the month of what looks like an inlaid stone bike lane on Center Boulevard, in the Queens West development in Long Island City. Repeated queries to DOT yielded no additional info, but we thought this one was too nice to sit on any longer. Anyone know how long this has been in place?

It’d be nice to see this Euro design elsewhere — though I wonder if it might be slippery when wet.
