Streetfilms: NYC — Cyclists Become “Human Bollards” to Protect 2nd Ave Bike Lane

Tuesday, September 5th, 2017

Earlier this summer, DOT filled an 18-block gap in the Second Avenue bike lane in Midtown. But there’s a big problem with the project: On most of those blocks, the new bike lane isn’t protected at rush hour, when the number of cyclists is highest and car traffic is most intense.So this morning, Transportation Alternatives volunteers took safety in their own hands, lining up between 45th Street and 44th Street to form a “human-protected bike lane” during the 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. rush.

Chicago’s Dearborn & Randolph Protected Intersection

Friday, July 28th, 2017

…this configuration in Chicago may be the most heavily used by not only bike riders but pedestrians as well. During the busiest times of rush hour and lunchtime, it sure gets a ton of use by plenty of people. I was lucky to grab Kyle Whitehead from the Active Transportation Alliance for 30 minutes to show me both of Chicago’s intersections. This one is at the intersection of Dearborn & Randolph which was completed near the end of 2016.

Monday, April 24th, 2017

This year for NYC’s 2nd Car-Free NYC Earth Day, things picked up considerably from last year’s inaugural event. The big spectacle was that you could walk or bike up Broadway from Union Square all the way to Times Square on car-free streets. But in a way since the Science March was already coming down Broadway to 47th street from the north, many people were able to traverse it all the way to Columbus Circle.

STREETFILMS— Sneckdown Legitimized: Real World Applications from NYC Streets

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

Every time I post a new video on the sneckdown phenomenon, I get all sorts of comments, emails and tweets on social media that it will never work. That you can’t justify the idea. That I should “stop hating on cars”. That no matter how well done, the video showing sneckdowns 10 feet from the curb that have been there for weeks (that drivers are successful navigating) that they couldn’t work. That we still need all the asphalt for video and that pedestrians are second class citizens.

Wednesday, February 15th, 2017

Back in January 2002, I recorded my commute and what it was like to ride in our very best existing – but mostly troubled – bike lanes in NYC. The footage is amazing showing how frustrating it used to be!
