Are Guerrilla Bike Lanes a Good Idea? | Atlantic Cities
According to the New York City Department of Transportation, Manhattan's Sixth Avenue is one of the busiest bike streets in the city. But north of 42nd Street, its bike lane comes to an abrupt end.
Back in 2011, the local Community Board's transportation committee considered whether to install a dedicated bike lane up to 59th Street, where the street terminates. After some debate, the committee wound up with a tie vote, an outcome that counts as a "no."
"I don’t see the benefit of trying to implement a bike lane in this corridor. It just doesn’t make sense," Michael Keane, transportation committee chair, said at the meeting.
