Mayor Bloomberg has been redefining New York’s streets as places to walk and ride bicycles, not just drive. He’s turned Times Square into a pedestrian zone, introduced traffic calming measures and added 200 miles of bike lanes in the past three years. Some New Yorkers have balked at these changes. They’ve even figured into the mayoral campaign. WNYC reporter Matthew Schuerman and producer Richard Yeh visited one bike lane to see what the fuss is about.
