Bushwick residents who commute by bike may have noticed a major change on a major roadway in the neighborhood lately. A late August DOT paint job has rendered a designated bike lane as well as additional lane markers on Knickerbocker Avenue!
The bike lane is the end product of a very long planning process that involved the Department of Transportation as well as many members of the greater Bushwick community—and which was approved as the result of a very close vote by Community Board 4 last spring.
Knickerbocker starts where it branches off of at Morgan Avenue in East Williamsburg and runs all the way southeast to Moffat street, just before the start of Most Holy Trinity Cemetery—and DOT scoping projects indicate that it’s one of the neighborhood’s key cycling routes.
Get out there and give it a spin—we’ll see you in the streets, Bushwick!
