New Yorkers react to Citi Bike.
But even now, in an era of hyper-localization, of neighborhood blogs and Patch sites, many of us have little sense of what our community boards are doing, little time to pay attention, and the boards in turn often are short-staffed and cannot possibly disseminate information on every issue.
In summary, the Urban Arrow is a car. It felt like a pure luxury sedan and the price of course matches. If you want a car replacement like us you need to check out this bike.
Great to see the new @socialbicycles! I love this #bikenyc startup story! (at Puck Building)
HACKING #BIKENYC: PEER PEDAL POWER / The bicycle community in New York City is known for its solitary nature – you against the city, muscling through traffic, surviving on your own wits. BikeHack was born around the idea that these independent folks have incredibly valuable information to share with each other. Formulated from the #BikeNYC meetup, this team combines an interest in urbanism, technology, and multi-modal transportation. At the hackathon, they focused on how bicycling could become participatory, social, and safer.
Brooklyn CB 1 hearing on Waterfront Greenway – Dec 19th
Dear Williamsburg and Greenpoint Residents!
The Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway, when it is completed, will create a continuous recreational and transportation path along the entire Brooklyn waterfront. It will be for Brooklyn residents what the Hudson River Greenway is for Manhattan residents. This comprehensive plan for public space along the Brooklyn waterfront has gone through years of community input and now it is time to get it built in Greenpoint!
Next week, Community Board 1 will vote on whether they support the completion of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway along West Street in Greenpoint. Your voice in the room will ensure that their answer is a resounding YES.
What: Community Board 1 Transportation Committee Meeting
When: Wednesday, December 19th, 6:30 pm
Where: 435 Graham Avenue

Bicycles are part of all this. In the early days after the storm, when the trains and buses stopped running, bikes were one of the few reliable ways of moving people, objects, and information around streets choked with debris. They don’t require the gasoline that people are still lining up for hours to get. They don’t need to be charged up – just add some basic food to a human being, and you can power the legs that turn the cranks.
