Chinatown bike lane experiment ends, Bykofsky pleased

    Say goodbye to the Chinatown bike lane.

    Residents and business owners rallied last summer to prevent the city from removing a lane of car traffic to make room for a padded bike lane on 10th Street. Now the Mayor’s Office of Transportation and Utilities is putting an end to the experiment.

    Daily News columnist Stu Bykofsky celebrated yesterday, happy to see the extra large bike lane go and neighbors get their way. When the street is repaved this summer, the blocks between Vine and Market will just have chevron signs painted on the road to encourage sharing.

     

    It was just about a year ago that Bykofsky appeared on NewsWorks Tonight for a friendly bout over bike lanes. You can tune in here for a trip down memory (bike) lane.
