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.)
