Signs Point to Kent Ave. Bike Lane War

New, 35 comments

The Hasids of South Williamsburg look like they're making good on their threat to block the new Kent Avenue bicycle lane with school buses. A sign posted on private property along Kent Ave. urges motorists to use Wythe Avenue one block east during student pick-up and drop-off times to avoid the blockages. The Kent Avenue bike lane controversy began as an argument over hipster hotties pedaling through Orthodox territory, but has since shifted to complaints about loss of parking and child safety. A bunch of clowns are also involved. [NYPost via Gothamist]
