    Someone should tell Joanne Seminara that bikes still park for free in NYC.  And that if there aren’t enough places to lock her bike, to contact the chairperson of her local community board 😉

    Going from one corner of Brooklyn’s CB10 to the opposite corner is a distance of about 3.4 miles (following the streets, not “as the crow flies”). That’s a very practical distance for biking or even walking. If biking/walking are not possible for some reason, I’d rather have the city reimburse the CB members for cab fares for justified business trips than give them a parking permit that can be (ab)used 24/7.

    The idiots at the MTA should have known that flashing blue lights are a no-no.  Don’t shoot the messenger. 

  • Ryan Ng

    The idiots in SI should know the difference between a SBS bus and a police bus.

  • Larry Littlefield

    I saw a heck of a lot of people biking around this morning, compared with similar weather a few years ago.  The bike parking at the garage I used is mostly full.  A couple of winters ago there were only three of us.
