    Since the Prospect Park bike path is one way, what the Borough President wants when he says use the Prospect Park bike path northbound is for me to travel around the park and add 1.2 miles and the steepest hill in Brooklyn to my nine mile commute to work. This to keep a third motor vehicle lane on Prospect Park West.

    Very well, then cut a motor vehicle lane out of the park and make the bike path there two-way.

  • HSR: Good, but really it would be better to just reactivate the intracity transit & intercity rail that was in place in 1950.

    KSM: 2004 RNC far more disruptive than any terror trial. aka, it’s all politics. McCain was gloating over Bloomberg’s flip-flop.

    TLC: I’ll believe the enforcement when I see it.
