This Week: Bed-Stuy Gets a Look at Bike-Share

The livable streets calendar is starting to quiet down for the holiday season, but there’s no holding back the city’s extensive public outreach for the roll-out of a public bike-share system. This week, the transportation of Brooklyn Community Board 3 in Bed-Stuy gets a look at the how bike-share would work.

  • Tonight: Subway historian Joe Cunningham gives a lecture on the early history of the elevated railroad, focusing on an 1868 line that ran down Greenwich Street in the West Village. 6:30 p.m.
  • Also tonight: The New York Cycle Club celebrates 75 years of recreational riding with a holiday party. Dinner and dancing for $25. 6:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday: DOT takes its bike-share presentation to Brooklyn Community Board 3’s transportation committee, laying out how the system will work in Bed-Stuy. 6:30 p.m.
