Caption Contest: Anthony Weiner on a Citi Bike

Photo: ## Mag##

I don’t care if this is a carefully choreographed photo op. For one day, at least, we’re not going to run a picture of the Weinermobile in a post about Anthony Weiner. We’re just going to link back to the most recent post with a Weinermobile picture. And we’re going to turn this into a caption contest.

I think this might be the first caption contest we’ve run with the Disqus up-voting system enabled in the comments. We have no prizes to give away this time, just bragging rights. So… captions, anyone?

    “In order to discuss bike lanes intelligently and understand the pros and cons, I cannot speak from a pedestal I must have first-hand knowledge and understanding…I’m a hands on kinda guy…not your ‘AVERAGE’ politiican.

Anthony Weiner: I Love Bike Lanes. Let Me Count the Exceptions…

Anthony Weiner, enemy of congestion pricing and infamous bike lane antagonist, is talking about street design on the campaign trail. Though there was plenty of warning this day would come, it’s still kind of surreal. Weiner told Capital New York’s Azi Paybarah he was just joking when he boasted to Michael Bloomberg and a room […]

Caption Contest: Not Commenting About the [Expletive] Bike Lane

This was the scene in Jackson Heights yesterday, where Mayor Bloomberg, Anthony Weiner, and the top dog on Prospect Park West, Senator Chuck Schumer, joined a bevy of other pols to contest the surprisingly low Census counts in Brooklyn and Queens. (That’s Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez between Bloomberg and Schumer.) During the presser, the Senator was […]

Caption Contest: Time to Expand Car-Free Broadway [Updated]

Just another day at 53rd and Seventh. Photo: Gawker. Hey, here’s some of that pulse-pounding New York City energy that a few people wish we still had in the middle of Times Square. Instead of propelling a vehicle through midtown streets, the energy embedded in this taxi’s tankful of gasoline has been converted into giant […]

Caption Contest: Shelly’s Lifetime Supply of Free Parking

Photo courtesy of the Daily Politics Why is Rochester Mayor and lieutenant governor-in-waiting Robert Duffy presenting this novelty oversized parking placard to Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver? The occasion was a ribbon-cutting for a parking structure that just re-opened in downtown Rochester. Back in 2006, an exit ramp of the South Avenue Garage collapsed. Miraculously, no […]
