Bike Wars

Community Board 4 has asked the Department of Transportation for a new Chelsea bike lane, going east-west on West 29th Street west of Eighth Avenue. The request is in response to the death of cyclist Marilyn Dershowitz, who was struck by a post office truck in July while biking on West 29th Street. There are no east-west bike lanes between 21st and 77th streets. Maybe this one will sneak by bike lane opponents, because many of them are preoccupied by the pedestrian-cyclist war now erupting on the Brooklyn Bridge. [NYP]
