Eyes on the Street: Bike Traffic on Eighth = Rolling Goldmine
Thanks to BicyclesOnly for posting this shot from yesterday morning's commute to the Streetsblog Flickr pool. By my count, we've got six people riding bikes here on a one-and-a-half block stretch of the Eighth Avenue protected path, with two or three others farther back, in the shade. As far as I can tell, everyone is riding in the right direction. If I was an Eighth Avenue merchant, I'd start agitating for more bike parking in front of my store.
More recent highlights from the Flickr pool (tag photos with "streetsblog" to contribute) after the jump.
Also from BicyclesOnly: The Lafayette Street bike lane on Tuesday morning.
From darkpilot: The corner of Fourth Avenue and 9th Street in Brooklyn is getting a bigger sidewalk. This is one among dozens of intersections targeted for pedestrian improvements in the Downtown Brooklyn Traffic Calming Project.
