NYC’s Taliban Stays Vigilant In Battle Against Bike Lanes

12.07.09 Bucky Turco

The skirmishes between the Hasidic community and cyclists continue with word that two people were arrested this morning by the Jewish secret police force for attempting to paint bike lanes on Bedford Avenue. Fresh air advocates and cyclists alike are still unhappy over the religious cult’s lobbying efforts, that resulted in the DOT removing 14 blocks of the bike lanes in South Williamsburg. At least the neighborhood has been safeguarded from all those athletically dressed who caused all these problems in the first place.
