Tonight: Help DOT Build a River-to-River Bike Connection

DOT wants 20th and 21st Streets to be Lower Manhattan's prime river-to-river bike route.

If you are interested in contributing to the development and improvement of New York City's bicycle network, show up at this meeting tonight:

The transportation committee of Manhattan Community Board 6 will hear a presentation by Josh Benson, the Department of Transportation's Bicycle Program Director, regarding the river-to-river bike lane project for 20th and 21st Streets.

On 20th Street between First Avenue and the FDR Expressway (where Stuyvesant Town
and Peter Cooper Village annexed 21st Street), DOT will be removing a motor vehicle travel lane in each direction in order to stripe the bike lane and make the connection to the East River Greenway. You can be sure the Forces of Convenient Motoring will be there and they will not be happy about this one.

Come out, lend your support, and if it seems appropriate, give DOT a push to experiment with physically-separated bike lanes:
