Looking out for NYC

We had a great time last night at the Transportation Alternatives holiday party at the Brooklyn Brewery headquarters in Williamsburg.

T.A. does great things for our city, advocating for safer, healthier streets and transportation. They stood up to the NYPD on issues of traffic enforcement, they dedicate real resources and time to improving the safety and quality of life for NYC residents, and just last month its director was presented with the Rockefeller Foundation’s “Jane Jacobs medal” for lifetime leadership and vision toward bettering our urban landscape.

If we might jump on the soapbox albeit just briefly, consider donating to T.A. this month: A local foundation is matching all donations dollar for dollar.

Thanks to T.A. for a lovely event and another occasion to be grateful for all the ways to bike in the Big Apple.
