Eyes on the Street: Concrete Progress on Eighth Ave Protected Bike Lane

Doug Gordon of Brooklyn Spoke fame sends these shots of another milestone in the extension of the Eighth Avenue protected bike lane: The pedestrian islands are going in. These pools of pure unspoiled concrete were spied at the intersection of 35th Street.

Watching this NYC DOT safety project take shape in the heart of Midtown, a favorite quote from livable streets guru Jan Gehl comes to mind: "How nice is it to wake up every morning and know that your city is a little bit better than it was the day before."
