Amsterdam Upper west side bike lane debate continues

NYC has proposed to build a protected bike lane on Amsterdam avenue from 72nd to 110th street. As someone who rides through that area, I think it’s a great idea. We already have a protected bike lane on Columbus avenue and of course safe biking in Central Park. Some local residents are concerned that a bike lane may contribute to even more congestion on Amsterdam avenue due to deliveries.

With several Citibike stations installed throughout the Upper west, a new bike lane would be a welcomed addition for many residents who use the service and cycle through.
