NYC’s version of the Taliban, the Hasidics, are vowing to disrupt traffic to protest the new Kent Avenue bike lane. A few months ago, the Jewish sect grumbled about the Bedford and Wythe Avenue bike paths because they were offended by the attire worn by female cyclists pedaling through their ghettos. Now the kosher cult is unhappy about the removal of parking spaces and a spokesman promised that “private buses will intentionally obstruct Kent Avenue to pressure the city to remove the bike lanes and reinstate alternate-side parking.” |Gothamist|
