New Traffic Patterns 3- Work to Be Done

This morning began day two of the re-striping through Central Park at 72nd street. It was a nice surprise to happen upon the NYDOT workers starting their workday. I’m even more delighted that two of them arrived by bike. I stopped to chat with them briefly and they told me that work should be done by the end of the week.

Even though work is still in progress, I couldn’t help but grin from ear to ear, witnessing the new traffic pattern for cars being to take shape.

Sad but not surprising, some of them didn’t want to make room for the workers laying down the new markings. Cars don’t belong in parks, but we have to tolerate them a little while longer. Though I’m about to get really jealous of the people on Brooklyn, as I heard but can’t confirm that Prospect Park will be car-free by the end of the summer.

This mother and daughter stopped for breakfast and bonding time at the steps to the Bethesda Fountain. They had no idea about the new configuration being put in place. When I told them about it they were ecstatic.

As an end note to today’s post, here are a few more photos of people on bicycle, skateboard and foot who will benefit from the new configuration.
