Why is our system in Chicago working so flawlessly? I think it's the same system and management company.

Why is bike research in NY always done in retrospect? And what about looking to other countries and successful programs in Europe and around the world instead of just winging it with all this money?
As a New York cyclist I think it's embarrassing and extremely frustrating.

We did have a Black Parks Commissioner for five years under Koch. Gordon Davis looked very white and upper class but both his parents were Black. He once told the story about how when he was entering Williams College he was in a car and the other riders were talking about "the Negro " who was about to enter, They had no idea it was him.

Thankful to hear someone calling out the absentee landlord/glitchy busted system of Citibike. We do deserve better.

Will you be discussing Sandy Recovery in this segment? Continued focus on Build it Back is urgently needed. Thank you.
