Eyes on the Street: Breakfast in the Bike Lane

The sun rose in the east today. In other news, a cycling Streetsblog reader found her path to work impeded by New York’s Finest.

Attached is a photo I took at 7:54 this morning on the Broadway bike lane between 57th and 58th streets. The squad car parked in the bike lane contained two police officers eating breakfast. I stopped, got off my bike, took the picture (they flashed their lights), waved, and continued biking.

No word on whether the cops involved were dining on doughnuts while completely disrespecting bike-riding commuters and putting lives at risk. Nah. That would be too much to ask.
