It's great that DOT is adding a bike lane to 86th St.

However, this should be a protected bike lane. 86th St. is three feet wider than Ninth St., which received a protected bike lane last year. We shouldn't have to wait until more children are run over here to get one. Build the best infrastructure first. Parking spots be damned.

I've frequently found 85th street and 84th street to be an ideal east-west connector. The street is relatively quiet, with low traffic, little double-parking, and avoids major schools. It's easy to take further into Bensonhurst.

The bike lane from 86th Street south to 92nd street along Fort Hamilton Parkway has had major heaves in the asphalt, dramatically changing the elevation along the bike lane and effectively reducing it's width by half, driving cyclists closer to parked cars and putting them more at risk of being doored.

Shore Road's bike lane and parking lane should be flipped. A protected bike lane would help shorten the crossing distance on Shore Road. A narrower road would slow down speeding drivers. There is a problem with drag racing on this street. A narrower street would hopefully prevent it, or at least help keep people on bikes and on foot protected from the inevitable crash

A middle school is going to be built at the former site of Nathans at the corner of 86th St. and Seventh Ave. At a public meeting on March 12, a number of residents voiced concerns about traffic safety at this intersection. Many of those concerns could be addressed by eliminating on-street parking and creating a wide, protected bike lane on 86th St.

Following the Halloween attack on the Hudson River Greenway, some one place a large concrete chunk at the entrance to the bike path. The man-made boulder was haphazardly placed and forces cyclists heading in opposite directions into conflict with one another. Similar security measure to keep vehicles off of the bike path have NOT been deployed at Bay Parkway or Fourth Ave./Shore Road. This one appears to be little more than Security Theater.

This meeting was not publicly announced or posted to the community, such as train station boards, local billboards, common community centers, but rather spread throughout the bicycling community. There was not a good representation of the whole Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights community, which includes bicyclists, drivers, non-drivers, walkers, strollers, etc. This would be a biased decision to just go ahead and add these bike lanes without a full input from everyone.

There are no markings here for cyclist or alerts to drivers. And the lack of curb cuts makes drivers think they can park here and block what should be a clean connection in the Brooklyn Greenway.

Lief Ericson Greenway has amazing potential to give the neighborhood an off street east-west corridor but the pathway is currently terrible. Parks dept needs to clean up & repave the existing path, and DOT needs to clarify the entry/ exit points. there's a clearly marked turn & curb cut at 3rd ave but its unclear what is happening at Ridge bvd/ 2nd ave. And when it crosses 66th st between 4th & 5th ave it has no safety markings to slow cars or alert them to crossing cyclists. Entire ride needs an overhaul.

Bay Ridge Parkway should have a bike lane. Ideally it should be protected from from Shore Road to Bay Parkway. If that's not achievable right now, at a minimum, the section near the Gowanus Expressway overpass between Seventh Ave (S/B) and Fort Hamilton Parkway needs physical separation from traffic–even if it means eliminating parking spaces. This is the only section of the road that is still two lanes in each direction. As a result, people riding bikes are often pinched between moving traffic and the row of parked cars.
