Press Release:
here. came to Brooklyn Borough Hall dressed in holiday- and festive-colored costumes. After all, his rendition of “My Favorite Things” to the City Council’s Transportation Committee hearing on NYC Bike Policy, chalk full of anti-bike lane misinformation, made him an ideal candidate. After Brooklyn borough President Marty Markowitz’ clownish behavior last week at the well attended bike lane oversight hearing, the clowns hoped to invite Markowitz to join their circus. The “Love Your Lanes” clowns were also interested in adding a verse to the childhood anthem, “My Favorite Things”:
When the car honks,
and trucks double park,
when we’re run off the bike lane
I simply think of Prospect Park’s designated bike lane
And then I don’t feel so bad. The clowns were ready to recruit.

Posted by Benjamin Sutton on Fri, Nov 12, 2010 at 8:57 AM

Were you in the vicinity of the intersection of Franklin Street and Cayler Street in the Greenpoint/North Williamsburg industrial border zone on the evening of October 23? Do you live near there, pass through or drink at Diamond frequently? If so, maybe you could help a couple of cyclists who were badly injured there that evening by a hit-and-run driver and are looking for witnesses to the crash. Drop them an e-line at the address above (franklinstreetbikeaccident [at] gmail), and help bring the near-deadly driver to justice! (NYShitty)

Attacker on the Queensboro bridge

Not only do you have to watch out for car doors and random pedestrian crossings but now you can add naked deranged assailants to the list.

A prop man on the the TV show Nurse Jackie was attacked on the Queensboro bridge this morning while riding to work. He was knocked off his bike by an unprovoked attacker who was naked by the time the police caught up with him.

Speedy recovery to Joel Custer who has just undergone surgery for lost teeth and a possible broken jaw.
