Somehow without my knowledge a separated bike lane magically appeared on 1st Ave. How is that for fabulous? Two nights ago, I biked in peace all the way from Chinatown to 56th Street. The 2nd Ave bike lane goes all the way up to 49th St. And even is far North as 56 St is OK. Yeah, the last few blocks to the bridge are still old-school mess. But sometimes it's nice to be reminded about how far we've come!
And it's such a joy to bike through Queensplaza now.
