Tonight: Friendly Voices Needed for Harlem Bike Lane

Just a reminder that Community Board 10 will consider a new buffered bike lane for Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Boulevard tonight. The lane, from W. 118th to W. 153rd Street, would complete a direct cyclist route between Central Park and the Macombs Dam Bridge, and would serve to calm traffic as well, as bikes would replace one thru lane for cars.

DOT will not be making a presentation, though reps will be on hand to field questions. Come out and give some support if you can — particularly if you live in the area.
