Greenpoint cyclists are going to have a much easier time getting to Queens soon, thanks to the City Planning Commission voting yes on Assemblyman Joe Lentol’s proposal to add a dedicated bike lane to the Pulaski bridge. Right now, bikes and pedestrians share an overcrowded sidewalk, above. The city plans to bring the exact design to Community Board 1 before the end of the year, and if they green-light it, construction will start in the spring, according to the Brooklyn Paper.
