[A new "Bus Bulb" makes its debut on Broadway below Spring Street in SoHo]
As if getting around downtown weren't a big enough nightmare, those traffic-loving wizards over at the NYC Department of Transportation have come up with a new solution to our over-stuffed streets: Make the roadways smaller! The first of a whole slew of what the DOT gang calls "Bus Bulbs" has been constructed down in Soho right in the middle of Broadway. No room for cars here! And none of those new-fangled Bouley-fied bus stops either. Just big slabs of raised concrete and some cute little fences stretching from Houston Street all the way down to Bowling Green. Gothamist has the lowdown on what makes all these Bus Bulbs grow.
