This isn’t Vietnam?
…in a press release slamming D.O.T. for threatening to “desecrate a memorial site” at the square, Sean Sweeney, director of the Soho Alliance, said the department aims to turn the streets of New York into “Ho Chi Minh City.” We assume that means encourage a lot of biking in the Big Apple — which is something we wholeheartedly support. Safe, responsible cycling, that is.
It’s always amazing to me that these “real” New Yorkers are unwilling to sacrifice an inch to any form of non-motorized transportation or space for people. They’re okay with their city staying the way it is, so long as it stays like Houston.
