Street Fighters: Bike Lane War Adds Up

New, 2 comments

MSNBC puts a price tag on the hipsters vs. Hasidim war over the Bedford Avenue bike lane: $26,000 spent so far. That's $11,000 to install the lane and $15,000 to tear it up. Meanwhile, Transportation Alternatives, a bike advocacy group, wants everyone involved in the bike lane rumble to just calm down and keep their clothes on. In a statement, the group urged the underwear-wearing cyclists getting ready for a protest tomorrow to change their plans: "A bike ride of people in provocative undress doesn't make Bedford any safer." Plus, it's going to be freakin' freezing. [MSNBC, BK Paper; previously]
