    Any details on the bike sting on the Hudson River Greenway that Brooklyn Spoke was tweeting this morning? Also, what was that app for your iphone that you can quickly turn on, when being harassed by police? I def want to record all my interactions with the police, should I get caught in one of those stings, and I’d prefer not have a gopro cam on at all times. .. .

    Incorrect and it should have read: “More than half of commuters traveling BETWEEN Brooklyn and Queens drive to work.”
