  • It’s no coincidence that NY1 publishes hysteria-free bike stories because most of its reporters live modest lives in the city and many don’t own cars. The same cannot be said for the older, high-paid reporters for New York’s network affiliates.

    my theory on why the DOT won’t let car free parks go forward is they are looking too bike friendly and with the2013 mayoral election they don’t want to get the candidates fighting over who hates JSK the most.

    Regarding the D’Amato article, I’m reasonably sure the speed limit on Conduit Avenue (which is basically a service road for NY20 or The Sourthern Parkway), is 40 mph.  Granted, 50 mph is still speeding, but probably not enough to be ticketed for under normal NYPD practices.
