Walk Bikes Over Crowded Pulaski: Don’t Be Dicks
I am usually regarded as the “Hipster Defense Council” and am a self proclaimed bicycle advocate but come on people, when the Pulaski Bridge is packed with stranded G train commuters, don’t be dicks, walk your bikes! The Pulaski Bridge is already too narrow to accommodate as much foot and bicycle traffic it gets on a normal day.
During rush hour last night, it was treacherous to bike. The only option was to slowly weave in and out of rows of people, some elderly, some toting kids and it was not safe.
It doesn’t take very long to just walk the bike over. Do it! We are all in this together.
I won’t even get into how ridiculous the line of cars waiting on the Pulaski Bridge to full up gas tanks was.
Walk your bike when you are in a mob of confused people. We are all trying to get home after miserable commutes post #sandy.
Be safe and smart Greenpoint.
