“As part of Mayor Bloomberg’s environmental initiative, known as PlanYC, the city is set to have 18 hundred miles of bike lanes in place by 2015. But even before the policy shift, a trend has been underway on the streets, attracting more bike riders by the day.”

Noah Budnick, the deputy director of Transportation Alternatives.

Jan Gehl, an urban designer from Copenhagen, who advises the city’s Department of Transportation.
