…Unless You Bike to Work on Kent Avenue
First things first. David Yassky’s status update beats what we’ve seen from Marty Markowitz, hands down. And if anyone in the City Council can credibly claim the mantle of bike advocate, it’s Yassky: a steady voice in support of a car-free Prospect Park and forceful proponent of the Bikes in Buildings Bill. But this gesture of solidarity would sure feel a lot stronger if Yassky had stood with cyclists trying to preserve safety improvements on Kent Avenue, instead of giving his signature to the parking chauvinists attempting to roll back those advances.
