Cast Your Vote for the 2015 NYC Streetsies — And Give to Streetsblog

unnamed-1

It’s time for our year-in-review, the Streetsie Awards, and there are more things to vote on than ever. Before I get to that, please take a moment to consider what Streetsblog is worth to you.

Streetsblog matters because policy makers and elected officials know our audience demands results. You want safer, more livable streets, and Streetsblog’s reporting holds public officials accountable for delivering them.

Reader support is essential to producing Streetsblog. In 2016, your contribution will help us…

  • make the case for street redesigns that prioritize transit, biking, and walking — putting people first, not cars
  • watchdog city agencies and keep the de Blasio administration to its Vision Zero promises
  • press the City Council to change parking requirements that clog streets with traffic and drive up the cost of housing

…and respond to lots of opportunities, threats, and other situations that don’t fit neatly into bullet points.

Everyone who contributes will be entered to win this sweet folding bike from Tern, a Link D8:

Okay, now it’s Streetsie time. The polls are open until Sunday at midnight. Next week, we’ll hand out virtual hardware, then we’ll resume our usual publishing schedule after the new year. If you want to vote on more Streetsies, Streetsblog USA has not one but two posts to slake your thirst for polls.

Please give if you can, and have a great holiday, Streetsblog readers.

  • “DOT’s Biggest Missed Opportunity to Add Good Bike Infrastructure”

    All of them.

  • BBnet3000

    Since when do we demand that bike infrastructure be good anyway? So long as they’re providing any bike infrastructure at all I thought the party line was not to look a gift horse in the mouth.

    This is not without its victims: http://www.thelodownny.com/leslog/2014/09/bicyclist-seriously-injured-on-allen-street-this-afternoon.html

    Even the bike infrastructure is optional, viz Bway in West Harlem project.

  • AnoNYC

    “It’s Smart to Be Dense” is very educational. Presents a lot of information for those unfamiliar with the issues.
