This Week: ARTCRANK, Complete UWS Streets, Utica Ave Buses

It’s a packed calendar this week. Highlights include a state hearing on the Putnam Rail Trail, meetings for better bus service on Utica Avenue, a chance to speak up for complete streets on the Upper West Side, and community board meetings for bike corrals, bike lanes, and pedestrian improvements in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Thursday is the opening night party for ARTCRANK, a celebration of bicycling and bike culture featuring handmade posters by local artists, hosted by Bike Habitat at their Soho store. Thanks to ARTCRANK and Bike Habitat, proceeds will benefit the work we do at Streetsblog and Streetfilms to keep you posted about the latest in livable streets. The Streetsblog NYC team will be there enjoying the artwork and the Widmer Brothers beer, and if you RSVP before the event, you could win a Bike Habitat gift card.

Keep an eye on the calendar for updated listings. Got an event we should know about? Drop us a line.
