The East Side Streets Coalition will be hosting (via Transportation Alternatives) a Lower East Side Workshop tonight at Bluestockings Bookstore (172 Allen Street) at 7pm. They write: Share your thoughts on what makes it difficult to walk or bike in your neighborhood, your vision for improvement and brainstorm solutions using the New York City Street Design Manual. This will inform the development of an East Side Action Plan to be launched in Fall 2010. Whether you’re new to this issue or think about this all the time, please come and share your ideas. We want to hear your thoughts on making the Lower East Side streets safer and more enjoyable for pedestrians, bicyclists, public transit riders and everyone using the streets and sidewalks.
