Livable Streets Events

This Week: Biking Goes Mainstream; Summer Streets III, Part 2

It's the dog days and community boards are still on vacation. Luckily, the calendar features two more weeks of this to look forward to:

  • Thursday: How can NYC make cycling mainstream and integrate it with the city's transportation system? NYCOT's Jon Orcutt, Transportation Alternatives' Caroline Samponaro, and the Department of City Planning's Jack Schmidt will discuss at this panel put on by AIA's New York City Chapter.
  • Saturday: Summer Streets 2010, the second of three installments. Get up at dawn, experience the whole thing from 7:00 to 1:00, and avoid the lines at the dumpster pools. (Actually, the wait wasn't that bad.)
