Cast Your Vote for the 2013 NYC Streetsies — and Give to Streetsblog!

streetsie_2013

Welcome to the reader’s choice portion of the 2013 NYC Streetsies. Before you vote, take a moment to consider everything that’s changed this year. Look at all the pedestrian, bike, and bus improvements we have to sift through to anoint the best. Six years ago, before the Janette Sadik-Khan DOT had time to really get rolling, we didn’t have nearly so much (or such high-quality stuff) to choose from.

Will next year and the year after yield so many worthy nominees for the Streetsies? There are still plenty of traffic-plagued streets in need of a total overhaul, but making it happen won’t be easy. Streetsblog will be doing everything we can to press the new administration to improve pedestrian safety, add protected bikeways, and redesign car-centric streets to prioritize transit. If you haven’t given to our year-end pledge drive yet, please make a tax-deductible contribution today.

Your gift will go twice as far thanks to a generous anonymous donor: Every contribution to Streetsblog NYC before the end of the year will be matched up to $10,000. And readers who donate $50 or more will enter our drawing for a new PUBLIC C7 or V7 bicycle — we’ll pick two winners in January. Please give and support journalism that makes a difference for livable streets.

The NYC Streetsie polls are open until midnight on December 28, and to maximize your voting pleasure, you can head over to the Capitol Hill Streetsies. Our year-end publishing schedule will resume on Friday. Have a great holiday everyone.

    Ben, even I had to vote for Citibike, and I’m the treasurer of the all-powerful bike lobby. StreetsPAC deserves its own category!

  • But it’s also an honor to be considered in the same category as Citi Bike, no?

    Either way, more accolades are coming next week!

  • I have a feeling that Citi Bike is to the Streetsies as Meryl Streep is to the Oscars. There’s almost no competition.

    Speaking of the Oscars, does JSK get a lifetime achievement award?

  • All I have to say is: Stay tuned and find out.

Even after 51 weeks of reporting on NYC’s sustainable transportation and street safety scene, it’s still somewhat stunning to sit back and pore over the sheer volume of news that happened in the past year. 2010 was an epically bad year for transit riders, leavened by some important flashes of innovation. New York also saw […]
