This Week: Hudson Greenway Detour, Bike-Share in Brooklyn

This summer the Parks Department presented a plan to route cyclists away from the waterfront greenway and onto a hilly, poorly-lit path between 72nd Street and 83rd Street. The greenway can get crowded along the water on summer days, but most of the time the current path doesn't pose a problem. Nevertheless, as presented, the Parks Department's proposal would impose a permanent detour for cyclists without providing an adequate replacement.

You can weigh in on the plan later today, when the Parks Department shows an update on the plan to Manhattan Community Board 7.

In other community board action this week: Defend the new bike-share stations in Park Slope and Carroll Gardens or help plan the next phase of bike-share expansion in Crown Heights.
