A protected bike lane on Queens Blvd.? I never thought it would happen. Thank you NYC DOT and Jimmy Van Bramer!
But of course it's kind of just a starter phase....
That said, there has been real improvement. Citibike in LIC! Not yet Astoria. (And I won't hold my breath, but I never thought I'd see Citibike in Queens.) I love citibike!
And, oh yeah, Queens has officially jumped the shark. (Though the problem isn't tourists. I welcome them. It's rich people raising the rents, both residential and commercial, that worry me.)

If you need small parts, Loose Screws guys were (and I assume will continue to be) the best! Here's the part of the email I got from them. It's totally a free plug for them. I wish them the best!
Thank you for your support and patience waiting for Loose Screws to reopen. We are now based in Irvine, CA.
1. There is no longer a minimum order amount. We got a bit more automated and its easier for us to process orders now. Buy that small part you need and enjoy!
2. Shipping has been simplified. A low rate for U.S. orders up to $74.99. Hit $75 and shipping is free!
3. The sorting of the products has been geared towards more common/popular products. This helps in search mode as well.
4. We now have a blog, our Loose Screws Helpful Blog takes all of the experience we have built up over the years, and puts it out there, for all to see. See www.loosescrews.com/blog
Again, we're very excited to be back and serving those who love to commute and tour by bicycle. Of course, we also greatly admire our racing oriented customers. Keep pushing!
Questions? Shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We're always happy to help with tech and setup questions.
