Motorcyclist Avoids Gridlock on Varick Street
I’ve posted before about the gridlock mess that is Varick Street after 3 PM. The video above was recorded last month and it shows the generally terrible conditions for pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists at this intersections. Add a few goats, rickshaws, and an elephant onto this street and you’ve got yourself a veritable third world country.
Skip to about two minutes in to see a motorcyclist use the sidewalk as a convenient detour. And please remember it the next time a City Council member goes on and on about bikes on the sidewalk.
