Marty Markowitz Smartens Up
Hey Brooklyn - Smarten Up!
I'm a month late to posting this, but now that I've had a chance to clean up my desk it's still worth putting up. Cycling and livable streets advocates have had a contentious relationship with the Borough President. I've personally found his perspective on bike lanes, traffic calming and PPW in particular to be . . . frustrating. So I was genuinely and pleasantly surprised when the BP's office came out with this informative and balanced flyer.
A timely reminder that even when you disagree, even strongly, on some issues there can be areas of common ground to work together. Anyway, this is a welcome step in the right direction.
