  • I’m starting to think that publications like THE POST are trying to brainwash working class new yorkers in to thinking they don’t want bike lanes and things like city bike so that the city won’t have to invest in everyone’s neighborhood.

    “At least I don’t have those wretched bike lanes like those miserable rich people down in SoHo!”

    Crazy? I don’t know, It is THE POST.

  • Also I’m going to the precinct meeting for the South Bronx on wednesday to inform then that their officers are still acting as though it’s OK for people to park on the sidewalks and next to fire hydrants during Yankee games…. well at least on this one block where the officers are good friends with the garage owner.

    So, if I disappear you’ll have a good idea why… these guys are kinda’ shady. 🙁 I’ve have lots of photos, though and I’m going to be very cheerful and “nice” so I hope it works. I’d love company from other streetsblog folks in the Bronx. Let me know!

    Please do, I cannot stand that. It’s a problem near garages citywide too.
