Why Hasn’t Mayor Bloomberg Announced Her Replacement?

Department of Transportation Commissioner Iris Weinshall’s last day on the job is this coming Friday, April 13.

  • Joe K.

    Hizzoner is stuck in traffic.

  • anon

    If Friday the 13th passes and there’s still no announcement, who do we get as the Acting commish?

  • Joe K.

    Freddy Kruger’s cousin, Carl.

  • I think then we can assume that the April Fools day exclusive Streetsblog announcement is true…. at least until Earth Day (April 22nd), when the Mayor makes that announcement official!

  • UGS

    Appoint the “Ungrateful liberal scum” retired cop guy. He’ll know exactly what to do…

  • jimbob

    anon: The First Deputy Commissioner (Judith Bergtraum) becomes the Acting Commissioner.

  • Don’t know, but this qualifies as the shortest write up in Streetsblog history.

The Chrystie Street protected bike lane and the Jay Street protected bike lane, on top of the bike network development that came before them, plus the availability of Citi Bike, are clearly moving the needle.
