This Week: Gridlock Sam, Sandwiched By Bike Lane Proposals
On the Streetsblog calendar: In between community board meetings about bike lanes in Manhattan and Brooklyn, you can learn more about “Gridlock” Sam Schwartz’s plan to rationalize NYC’s toll system.
- Tuesday: DOT will present a plan for expanding the bicycle network in Brownsville and East New York to Brooklyn Community Board 5. CB 16 has already voted to support the plan. 6:00 p.m.
- Thursday: In a presentation at Baruch College, Sam Schwartz will discuss his equitable toll plan, which would toll driving into the most congested part of the city, where transit options are ample, and reduce tolls farther out from the city core. 10:00 a.m.
- Also Thursday: Manhattan Community Board 5’s transportation committee will discuss the Times Square reconstruction project, a proposal from the Bryant Park Corporation for a one-block, tree-lined boulevard on 41st Street, and crosstown bike lanes on 15th and 16th Streets. 6:00 p.m.
