How slow is the crosstown 42nd street bus? So slow that a slightly abrasive 35-year-old Queens comedian pedaling a kid's tricycle can beat the bus from Tenth Ave. to Madison by over two minutes while documenting it all on video. And anyone who's ever suffered the misfortune of riding the M42 probably doesn't think Mark Malkoff needs to be checked for steroids, either. Maybe DOT commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan can devise a radical plan to speed up the M42? Oh, that's right, people yell at her when she tries stuff like that.
