Building a bike network in south Brooklyn, NY (War on Cars Watch)

Neighborhoods in southern Brooklyn like Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, and Gravesend — with higher than average car ownership rates when compared to the rest of New York City — aren’t traditionally thought of as cycling hotspots. But as the city adds more and more bike infrastructure, and elected officials call for an ambitious bike network buildout, a new generation of activists is working to get southern Brooklyn its fair share of bike lanes and let the world know that bikes are welcome south of 65th Street.
