New York has been getting very ambitious about changing its cycling strategy and starting to treat cyclists like real road users. Danish architecture firm Gehl Architects provided the first analysis and strategic plan. This is a shot from 34th and Broadway just outside of Macy’s during Christmas 2009. It looked like there were some encroachment issues especially with pedestrians when they had no sidewalk alternative. Cars also cut in when they could. It will take some learning. I’d love to hear more from those on the ground about how this is going now. I’ve been to NYC a handfull of times in the past two years and the infrastructure changes there have been quite dramatic. Not sure with what results though.
