Biking is the Brooklyn way. It’s the fastest way to get to work if you work, say, in Dumbo and live in Fort Greene, said the New York Times. The Navy Yard is also easier to reach on a bike.
Biking can also mean lower housing costs, if you rent or buy in a transit-starved area such as Red Hook. And of course, it’s handy to meet up with friends who are not that far away as the bird flies, but would take an hour or more to reach on the bus. Do you use a bike to get around Brooklyn or are you considering it this summer? Where do you store your bike when you’re not using it?
