And just when I thought I was done with these Shit ____ Say things, Eliot & Ilana go and make the best one. If you live in New York. I PROMISE. 

Yeeeeah watch this.

Fantastic.

“Bikes can and should behave much more like cars than pedestrians. They should ride on the road, not the sidewalk. They should stop at lights, and pedestrians should be able to trust them to do so. They should use lights at night. And — of course, duh — they should ride in the right direction on one-way streets. None of this is a question of being polite; it’s the law. But in stark contrast to motorists, nearly all of whom follow nearly all the rules, most cyclists seem to treat the rules of the road as strictly optional. They’re still in the human-powered mindset of pedestrians, who feel pretty much completely unconstrained by rules.”

Felix Salmon: A unified theory of New York biking

A must read for all New Yorkers, not just cyclists.

This Sunday: Help Close the East River Greenway’s Midtown Gap
For 33 blocks in Midtown, Manhattan’s East River Greenway disappears, forcing cyclists to detour onto some of the most traffic-choked and dangerous streets in the city.
I’m going out of town tomorrow and therefore can’t go to the open house Sunday but would like to go to the CB6 board meeting at Baruch (17 Lex @ 22nd) 7pm Wednesday. They are expected to effectively vote against closing the gap. Do you want to go, too?

I need to spend more time at the library. I can’t believe this happened a block from my office and I missed it. Take special note of Winston’s sweet-ass mustache and the cheap-to-license replacement for the Ghostbusters theme song …

I created a map out of Grub Street’s list of the 101 Best Sandwiches in New York. 10 down, 91 to go.
