Has anyone ever been annoyed by all the bicyclists that ride down the strip of Eastern Parkway between the Museum, Botanical Gardens and the Library?
As someone who received a bike ticket around the corner just several months ago, (I wasn't riding on the strip) I just don't understand how the community has not bothered to make signs against bikers.
Kids walk down this sidewalk. It's just so unbelievably unsafe. I called 311 tonight and two precincts. The police said they would go there & check it out.
What can else can be done? It is misleading because there is the bike path on Eastern parkway and one would assume that it is sane to continue riding on the Museum sidewalk all the way down to the Museum, but it is a very small strip. Bikers sometime ride quite fast not being conscious of other people.
I saw 5 people in 10 minutes riding down here and have never once seen a police give anyone a ticket on this strip.
Is there something that can be done? I know the community board meetings, but with so many people going there with different issues, it seems impossible to address everyone. The meeting I went to was more about the politicians and police talking then the people in the community.
Just wondering if anyone else has been bothered by this quality of living concern.
