This week’s big agenda item is looking like Wednesday’s meeting of the Manhattan Community Board 4 Transportation Committee, where DOT will present plans for non-protected bike lanes on 29th and 30th Streets. At present, safe east-west routes in the area are scarce. In July, cyclist Marilyn Dershowitz was killed on 29th Street near Ninth Avenue. Meeting details are here.
Other items on the calendar:
- Tonight: The transportation committee of Manhattan Community Board 5 will follow up with DOT regarding Broadway pedestrian plazas, and will hear from the Department of Design and Construction on plans for the new Times Square.
- Thursday: Transportation Alternatives’ Brooklyn Volunteer Committee meeting.
- Saturday: The Museum of the City of New York will host a family workshop called “Planning Urban Spaces and Places: Transportation.” The workshop is free with museum admission, though reservations are requested. The workshop includes a walking tour.
