Bike Friendly Brooklyn?
That’s because beginning in 2006, the city’s Department of Transportation (DOT) devised a plan to install 200 miles of bike lanes throughout the city within three years. This third year is the plan’s most ambitious — it is when 110 of those miles are going to be installed. Brooklyn gets its approximate fair share of the pie with 39.6 miles of new bike lanes, 22.4 of which are already completed.
