    Another casualty due to the aggressive traffic on and near the Central Park transverse roads. Here’s another: http://www.streetsblog.org/2006/12/14/central-park-cyclist-in-serious-condition/

    The transverses are in desperate need of traffic calming.

    Re: Sidewalk Trash Cans Overflowing

    Yes, people are putting household garbage into trashcans, and the city could put more of them on the street, but in Park Slope, I’ve frequently observed the problem of people leaving trash next to, and outside of, trash cans when the cans are full, rather than walking across an intersection to use a less-full can. It generally happens on weekends, or during parades or streetfairs, but c’mon people, if the can is full, find one that’s not.

    It’s symptomatic of America’s convenience culture, I’m afraid.
