Mayor Bloomberg delivered his State of the City address at Brooklyn Tech yesterday afternoon. Anyone hoping to hear policy proposals on traffic, transportation, livable streets, climate change and long-term sustainability issues was likely disappointed.

During the speech, a Streetsblog tipster happened to be biking along Jay Street in Downtown Brooklyn on his way to the Manhattan Bridge. As he passed Brooklyn Tech he found his path blocked by a phalanx of double- and triple-parked limos, cop cars and gleaming black SUV's with city government license plates.

The State of the City, indeed
