Street Fighters?Literally!

Some bicycle diehards would probably like to punch Soho Alliance boss (and anti-Grand Street bike lane crusader) Sean Sweeney in the face. One did! The Downtown Express reports: "At a point where the pavement narrowed, the two came face to face, with the rider still racing at a rapid rate. Sweeney abruptly grabbed the bike's handlebars, to which the cyclist responded, 'Are you looking for trouble? 'Yeah!' Sweeney answered, though, he said, on second thought maybe he shouldn't have. Before Sweeney knew it, the cyclist — whom he said was 'clean cut, like a yuppie' — had sucker punched him in the face." Everybody: calm down! [DE; previously]
