This Is How Marty Markowitz Shows the World He’s Not Anti-Bicycling

Via Gothamist, here’s the video of Marty Markowitz making his entrance to the State of the Borough address last night. The Borough President, who parks his SUV on the pedestrian plaza of Borough Hall and uses lights and sirens on local streets when he’s late for press events, is perfectly comfortable riding a trike on 100 or so feet of traffic-free carpet. (To the delight of City Council Member David Greenfield, the first to rise for the standing O.)

So pay no attention to Marty’s dogged efforts to undo street safety improvements that can help reduce the thousands of preventable traffic injuries in Brooklyn each year. Marty likes bikes.
