I cannot wait for this. According to Bowery Boogie, Chrystie Street will finally get a 2-way bike lane that connects directly to the Manhattan Bridge.
The green bike lane will run along Sara D. Roosevelt Park and have protection from parked cars and jersey barriers. This is a much-needed improvement to the street which has seen many cyclists (myself included) dark across the two-way vehicular road in order to ride the wrong way on the current one-lane bike lane onto the entrance to the Manhattan Bridge (whew, that was sort of a mouthful).
The improvements will supposedly open in fall 2016.
