Keep the Momentum Going — Give to Streetsblog Today

Thank you to everyone who gave to Streetsblog and Streetfilms in the first week of our spring pledge drive. We need about 320 more donations to hit our target of 400 before June 1. Help us keep the momentum going and make a tax-deductible gift to support media that makes a difference for our streets.

Reader contributions fuel the excellent reporting about livable streets issues that you read every day here on Streetsblog. Right now, City Hall is thinking big about street safety, surface transit, and — fingers crossed — parking reform. The more support we get from readers, the better equipped Streetsblog will be to make the most of these opportunities.

If you value the information and commentary we publish and appreciate how Streetsblog frames the debate about transportation and planning in New York, please drop a tip in our secure donation form. You can make a one-time pledge or, even better, sign up for a monthly contribution. Every bit helps.

We’ve got a fun giveaway this week for two lucky donors. Author Elly Blue has graciously donated a collection of books and zines, including The Culinary Cyclist, PDX by Bike, and the one-of-a-kind anthology Bikes in Space. Give before Tuesday at midnight and you’ll be entered to win.

Thanks for supporting us and a happy Bike Month to all.

Here we are with a few weeks to go before bike-share launches in NYC, and the volume of nonsense floating around is staggering.
