Bike Books NYC

A new magazine, book, and zine store opened in Brooklyn: Quimby's NYC. There is an amazing collection of bike literature. The best in the city gathered in one place, dare I say. It's not Astoria, but it's well worth biking to. The proprietor started Quimby's Bookstore in Chicago in the 1990s. And then he lived in Amsterdam for a long time, where he picked up the bike bug. Yes, he keeps his bike in the store. Quimby's NYC is located at 536 Metropolitan Ave, in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

Astoria Park Bike Lane

Our Community Board actually approved a bike lane! This should be a vast improvement. Both for bikes and for limiting traffic by the park.
