Great day for a run. Not so great if you were in your car running on empty
Short video of Brooklyn halfmarathon on Ocean Parkway. Hardly anyone lining the route but there was something very peaceful without the din of cars and just the soft shuffling of thousands of people on their way to Coney Island.
I inquired into the bike share program for Ocean Parkway area. This is the response that I received from DOT. "Thank you for your interest in NYC Bike Share. We’re starting bike share initially in the neighborhoods where travel demand is the highest: Manhattan’s Central Business District and nearby residential areas, including Brooklyn neighborhoods of DUMBO, Downtown, Fort Greene, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Crown Heights, Williamsburg, Greenpoint and Park Slope. If there is enough demand, we hope to subsequently expand the program in all five boroughs. However, for the initial phase of bike share there will not be any station in Brooklyn CB’s 12, 14, or 15." -NYC DOT
