Will of On NY Turf is urging people who care about bike safety on the Hudson River Greenway to attend tonight's meeting of Manhattan Community Board 4's Transportation Committee. Less than a month after a drunk driver leaving a party at Chelsea Piers drove onto the Hudson River Greenway and killed cyclist Eric Ng,
Chelsea Piers may be proposing to cut another driveway across the bike path for access to the sports center's parking lot. Chelsea Piers will be making a presentation to CB4's Transportation Committee tonight. The Community Board and the Hudson River Park Trust have not yet seen any plans from Chelsea Piers so, at this point, it is unclear what exactly will be presented this evening. In June, Dr. Carl Nacht was also killed on his bicycle at a location where NYPD tow trucks cut across the Greenway.

When:
Tonight, Weds. 12/20, 6:30 pm.

Where:
Manhattan Community Board 4
330 W. 42nd Street bet. 8/9 Aves., 26th floor.

Not that this has much of anything to do with anything but here is a photo of Chelsea Piers owner Roland Betts hanging with a good friend, former Yale classmate and fraternity brother at Betts' Jackson Hole, Wyoming residence:
