In post-storm New York, the bike is having a moment of sorts.
With subways still not running under the East River or between Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn, traffic snarled in many places and lines for buses stretching for blocks, many people in Brooklyn took to bicycles on Thursday to get where they had to go…
Many frequent bike commuters said that, with sparse traffic in downtown Manhattan, conditions for biking were ideal.
“I just bombed all the way down Broadway right now — I think I saw five cars,” said Jason Jaramillo, 34, who had just biked to Brooklyn from the Upper West Side. “I wish it was always like this.”
