    Gothamist article on the killing of Jack Koval is worth reading.

    very compelling eyewitness testimony and driver all but convicts himself.

    The way to get Penn Station right would be to allow Andy to indulge his fetish for really large vehicles with a tank for a few hours.

    I heard on good authority earlier today that the CBS2 crew who put together the bikelash story earlier this week approached Gridlock Sam for a possible interview, but ditched him when he said he would present a counterpoint to their narrative blaming bike lanes for the slowdown in Manhattan CBD traffic flows. Sam was prepared to say, on camera, that the biggest factor in worsening midtown gridlock is the rise of Ubers and other TNC’s, not bikes or bike lanes.
