It’s been nearly ten months since Hoboken abandoned its well thought out plans for protected bike lanes on Washington street. Despite years of workshops, city staff and official meetings, public open houses and a final concept design – the city council ultimately changed the plan of the street at the 11th hour. In its place, Washington street will only have striped bike lanes south of 8th street, and sharrows to the north. Ignoring the many people and voices that gave their input on the final plan.
During the city council meeting, many of the people who voiced opposition said that they did not oppose protected bike lanes in Hoboken – just they did not want them on Washington street. Well it’s nearly a year later. And we want to know – where are Hoboken’s protected bike lanes?

Most of it is just half a day of traveling away, and very affordable compared to Europe. We are on a lucky continent. You’re forbidden from generalizing North American urbanism without visiting a least a few of the places on the Pueblo Mágico list.
When I first visited Mexico, it shocked me how much inequality there was between the rich and the poor. Mexico City is up there among the most beautiful cities in the world…
