    As part of the Mayor’s PLANYC, the city’s proposing new regulations for all new and enlarged commercial parking lots with at least 18 parking spaces or 6,000 square feet, replacing weed-filled perimeters with shrubbery and trees.

    To help get New Yorkers behind a pair of handlebars instead of a steering wheel, the city would also require bike parking.

    We’d do much more for the environment by replacing the entire parking lot with trees and bike parking.

  • re Hudson River Park’s need for funds: This waterfront recreational facility was created in conjunction with the West Side Highway – a compromise solution to the battle of Westway. The park and road are an integral design, like a modern version of a parkway. The boulevard/highway features park landscaping and infrastructure (lights, signs, curbing, etc.) that are unique in the city of New York (and a model to be replicated.) It seems that more of the financial burden of creating this shared park/road/waterfront facility could be borne by users of the road. Should some of the congestion fees be directed to the parks that will host the free by-pass routes? Or should those routes really be free?
