Tomorrow: Join TSTC in Thanking the City for Making Streets Safer

To counter the full-tilt assault from the press and, as of yesterday, in the courts, the Tri-State Transportation Campaign will hold a rally Wednesday morning to thank Mayor Bloomberg and city transportation officials for making New York streets more accommodating to pedestrians, cyclists and bus riders.

On the steps of City Hall, TSTC will present the city with a thank-you card signed by over 1,700 people, and will read statements from New Yorkers who have benefited from street improvements brought about during the tenure of NYCDOT Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan.

Care of TSTC’s Steven Higashide, Here’s how you can get involved:

Stand with us at 9 a.m. at City Hall.

Send in a brief story about how NYC’s pedestrian/cycling/transit improvements have personally affected you.

To submit your stories, to RSVP or to get more information about tomorrow’s event, e-mail Steven at steven@tstc.org.
